WHO has recently published consolidated guidelines on systematic TB screening for high-risk populations to increase TB case detection by active case finding (ACF). However, passive case finding at clinical settings is the greatest opportunity for TB diagnosis because patients with some sort of respiratory symptom and other outpatients like with diabetes are at high risk of TB.
This workshop aims to promote more active use of chest radiography (CXR) with a high sensitivity for systematic TB screening to accelerate TB detection at clinical settings.
