Expert Insight: The importance of pediatric reference intervals for diagnostic testing

Join this webinar on Wednesday, January 20, to learn how to overcome the challenge of adopting age-specific reference intervals in pediatric care

05 Jan 2021



Dr. Khosrow Adeli, Head of Clinical Biochemistry at the University of Toronto

Currently, many pediatric laboratory test results are inappropriately interpreted using reference intervals derived from either adult populations, hospitalized pediatric populations, or from outdated methodologies. Age-specific reference intervals are extremely important for interpreting measurements in the pediatric population but, unfortunately, there are very few studies that provide reference intervals using robust, statistically sound studies and well-characterized healthy populations.

In this SelectScience webinar, Dr. Khosrow Adeli discusses how to best overcome the challenges involved in establishing reference intervals for proper clinical interpretation of pediatric lab results, aiding the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric patients.
