hCG tests are some of the most commonly performed laboratory assays today, and are generally considered simple, reliable tests for pregnancy. However, when physicians or laboratorians encounter inconsistent or unexpected hCG test results, or the test is used for purposes other than determining pregnancy status, the complexities of hCG testing become evident. Often, laboratorians are asked to put on their detective hats to investigate unexpected hCG results, and sometimes solving these hCG testing mysteries can be challenging. During this 60-minute webinar, Drs. David Grenache and Ann Gronowski review perplexing cases in hCG testing, and share the strategies that can be used to investigate them. (This is a recorded version of an AACC live webinar that was held October 8, 2015).
