Answer

Imaging studies used in the workup of patients with EGPA include chest radiography and chest computed tomography (CT). Other imaging studies are indicated for the complications of the disease and specific organ-system involvement, including abdominal CT scanning for pancreatitis, coronary angiography for myocardial ischemia and infarction, and echocardiography for congestive heart failure (CHF).
