The initial diagnosis of pneumonia is when the doctor detects coarse breathing or wheezing when examining the patient. In this case the doctor will carry out a chest X-ray in order to confirm the diagnosis of the disease. Lobar pneumonia is detected in this way as it affects the segments of the lungs. In bacteria or fungi infections, sputum samples are collected to be examined under a microscope or grown in special incubators to determine the organism.

The sputum must contain less saliva and the must be delivered quickly to the lab to prevent overgrowth on non infecting bacteria from the mouth.
