Tuberculosis Screening – App for Economics Simulation
Innovations in diagnostic imaging make screening for pulmonary TB in high risk groups faster and more sustainable. Digital Chest X-ray (dCXR) with Computer Aided Detection (CAD) when used as an automated rapid triage before Xpert® MTB/RIF can significantly reduce diagnostic cost.
Calculations can be customised online for 2 screening scenarios:
Scenario 1: dCXR/CAD to screen all members => only CAD suspects on Xpert® MTB/RIF for diagnosis
Scenario 2: Xpert® MTB/RIF for all members
All data presented herein are for general information purposes only and are based on the latest information available to CheckTB!. Sample values in red can be customised by the user. When clicking on Go the simulation results will appear immediately for both scenarios. The App name CAD4TB® is used with permission of Delft Imaging Systems www.delft.care.
