Excerpt

A physical examination, and the findings from imaging tests, computed  tomography (CT) scans (also called "diagnostic radiology"), tissue biopsies and blood tests are used to determine the extent of the patient's NHL. This process is called "staging," and the information is used to determine appropriate treatments (chemotherapy, radiation).
