How is hepatitis B diagnosed?
Standard blood tests will help in the diagnosis, and specialized blood tests can confirm a hepatitis B infection. A Children’s Hospital Colorado liver specialist will accompany the patient on an annual basis to assess for progression of disease.
Why choose Children’s Colorado for hepatitis B testing?
At Children’s Colorado, our staff members are specialists at obtaining blood from patients of all sizes. In addition, a special cream can be applied to decrease the pain from a needle stick.
