A Briefing Note was developed for Global Fund staff when supporting Principal Recipients in the selection of X-ray and computer-aided detection (CAD) software. Chest X-ray (CXR) has been used by tuberculosis (TB) programs as a screening tool for detecting TB disease particularly among subpopulations that are at higher risk.
The document “Chest Radiography and Computer-aided Detection (CAD) Solutions for Tuberculosis Programs” [ download in English | Español | Français ] provides information to help in the selection of these technologies. It outlines the role of chest x-rays and computer aided-detection software in TB programs.
