PANCE Practice Question for May 22nd

A 45-year-old man with history of previously well-controlled hypertension comes in because colleagues at his office are telling him that his appearance is changing. The patient has recently noted that his old shoes felt too tight and he had to buy new, larger shoes. He also complains of shooting pains in his hands which his company nurse told him were consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome. Review of systems reveals increased thirst and urination. His temperature is 37.0°C (98.6°F), blood pressure 190/90 mm Hg, pulse 73/min, and respirations 13/min. Physical examination shows frontal bossing, mandibular enlargement, and widening of the spaces between his teeth. His hands and feet seem larger and more out of proportion to his body size than usual.

Which of the following is the most appropriate diagnostic study at this time?
