Screening for Pneumonia

The content below is part of the “Health Library” and is not indicative of services available at the facility.

The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.

There are no current screening guidelines or tests available for pneumonia. Pneumonia is usually diagnosed when symptoms arise.
