Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is usually characterized by absence of clinical signs. Rapid diagnostic tests with high sensitivity for lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI) could lead to improved patient care. 97 servicemen with LRTI were analyzed to compare radiological, clinical and transresonant functional topography (TRFT) findings in the differential diagnosis of CAP The research data revealed that TRFT findings improve the assessment of pneumonia based on carefully taken case history and physical examination. TRFT data contributed to development of treatment course algorithm in case of acute respiratory tract infection
