Hepatitis C: Tests and Diagnosis

How is hepatitis C diagnosed?

Standard blood tests will help in the diagnosis, and specialized blood tests can confirm hepatitis C 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 C 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.
