Answer

Computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis can be used to stage lesions. If the patient is stable, chest CT scan is indicated to assess for the degree of tracheal compression. Head CT scans assist in excluding mass lesions and possible meningeal involvement in individuals with CNS disease.
