Abstract
A total of 390 transcutaneous bilirubin measurements were performed in 318
Korean fullterm and 72 preterm infants on forehead. 100 test samplings for reproducibility
rendered a mean coefficient of variation less than 5% and the calculated coefficients of
variation for technique dependence ranged from 1.98 to 4.78%. We obtained a correlation
coefficient of 0.78 and pserum bilirubin concentrations. We consider that infants with a total serum bilirubin concentration
exceed 12.9mg1lOOml have significant hyperbilirubinemia. We set forehead transcutaneous
bilirubin index of 19 as a useful dividing level. The specificity and sensitivity of the
test are 98% and 74% respectively. Positive and negative predictive value are 76% and
97% respectively. It can be used as a screening test but further investigation will be necessary.
