   This tool is an interactive way to acertain the status of Hepatitis B cases. It will help sort out lab and clinical evidence to arrive at conclusions matching the current CSTE case definition for acute confirmed and not a case, and chronic confirmed or probable. Press start when you are ready to begin.

Note: The case ascertainment tool is only a recommendation. All positive Hepatitis B labs must be reported to DIDE and investigated regardless of case definition.
