Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been remarkable advances in diagnosis. Initially, the indication for diagnostic tests was strictly controlled by the government. Currently, however, various tests, from point-of-care testing to rapid PCR, are available for many clinics and hospitals. At the same time, the interpretation of test results became harder due to the existence of different types of testing as well as different qualities in the same type of testing. This review aims to overview the available test types and understand the basics of these tests to interpret the test results appropriately, especially in transplant recipients.
