Diagnostic Imaging

  • X-rays: Can help identify any abnormalities in the bones or organs.
  • Ultrasound: Uses sound waves to visualize the spleen, lymph nodes, or other organs.
  • CT scan: Provides detailed cross-sectional images of the body.
  • MRI: Uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body.

Other Tests

  • Lymph node biopsy: Removes a sample of lymph node tissue for examination.
  • Immunophenotyping: Identifies specific proteins on the surface of cells.
  • Cytogenetic analysis: Examines the chromosomes for any abnormalities.
  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR): Detects specific genetic material, such as viral or bacterial DNA.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s condition and response to treatment.
  • Provide education on the disease, its potential complications, and the importance of adherence to treatment.
  • Encourage the patient to report any new or worsening symptoms promptly.
