Title:
Hepple - Microscopy compared to culture for the diagnosis of Tuberculosis in Induced Sputum samples; a systematic review
Authors:
Hepple, P; Ford, N; McNerney, R
Journal:
The International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease : the Official Journal of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease
Abstract:
Resource-limited settings rely on sputum examination using microscopy to diagnose tuberculosis (TB); however, the sensitivity of the test is poor and case detection rates are low. Sputum induction is proposed as a way to improve sample collection and enhance test sensitivity.
