Question Dexamethasone Suppression Test

I do not know if I am out of it but new MTB 2 pg 120 2nd paragraph why would you do a MRI of the brain if you cannot suppress the ACTH with high dose Dexamethasone? Would you not go for CT of the Chest, and Ab to look for ectopic causes since ectopic is not suppressed by dexamethasone?
