    Serology for Legionella species: Several tests are available. Acute and convalescent sera (at 8-12 wk) demonstrating a 4-fold increase in titer to >1/128 must be present for serological diagnosis. Urine antigen testing is highly specific and sensitive and, if available within the treatment facility, very rapid. Indirect fluorescent antibody testing and nucleic acid hybridization testing also may be available. Direct fluorescent antibody examination has fallen out of favor.

    Chest radiography
    Legionella infection almost always produces an abnormal chest radiographic finding, but abnormality is variable and may be focal or diffuse.

    Up to 50% of patients have a pleural effusion.

    Chest radiography is not a specific test for Legionnaires disease.

    Chest radiograph often shows patchy alveolar infiltrates with consolidation in the lower lobe (although all lobes may be affected).

    It may take 1-4 months for the chest radiographic finding to return to normal.

    Progression of the infiltrate may be seen despite antibiotic therapy.

    Noncontrast head CT scan
    This is indicated for patients with altered mental status.

    Findings should be normal in Legionnaires disease.

    Lumbar puncture: This procedure is indicated for patients with altered mental status. In uncomplicated Legionnaires disease, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings are generally normal.
    Bronchoscopy with or without bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) may be helpful in establishing or excluding the diagnosis if respiratory culture specimens are difficult to obtain.
