Quantitative or Qualitative ?
Sep 7, 2008

I had Hepatitus C, 6 years ago and was cured given the Pegintron treatment. My Fiancee wants me to get tested again before we get married. Which tests should I get, the quantitative or the qualitative?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would get the qualitative which is the most sensitive. You should have a good result. Best of luck on your marriage!
