Diagnosis

Accurate diagnosis has never been straightforward for aspergillosis, but modern tools are being developed rapidly and are now improving the speed and accuracy of diagnosis. 

A patient presenting at the clinic will first be asked to give a history of the symptoms that they have noticed. Depending on this history a number of tests may be requested from  the following list:

  • A blood test

  • X-rays or CT scan of the chest

  • A skin test to measure sensitivity to Aspergillus allergens

Facebook communities

Facebook Communities are far reaching, covering billions of people around the world. One of our main aims is to reach as many people as possible with information about aspergillosis infections and to let them know that we offer specialist advice and support based at the NHS funded National Aspergillosis Centre in Manchester, UK.
