Clonorchiasis
Diagnostic Strategies
  1. Screening populations to assess prevalence
    Perform a cross-sectional study analysing fixed stool specimens with a concentration method (preferably after sedimentation).
    As an alternative screening method, serology could be used (if multiple trematode species are not prevalent!)
     
  2. Detecting clonorchiasis in exposed individuals
    Examine one or multiple fresh stool specimens for ova after concentration
