New study review - Diagnosis and management of pediatric complicated pneumonia using the Karius Test
This live webinar will focus on the utilization of the Karius Test for community acquired pneumonia (CAP) at Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego. Pediatric CAP is a serious infection caused by a wide range of bacterial, viral, and fungal etiologies and is a leading cause of hospitalization in children.

Lead author, Dr. Lauge Farnaes will discuss a newly published retrospective study in Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease, evaluating the impact of the Karius Test and how it performs against standard-of-care diagnostic techniques such as cultures (1).

One of the main findings of the study was that as a result of Karius Test results, changes in antibiotic management were made in 47% of children hospitalized with complicated pneumonia.
