Abstract:
Primary objective of this study: To determine if the application of a tick-sheet after four hour training on its use and on CXR interpretation, improves the interpretation accuracy of CXRs for active TB, by non-specialists, in an HIV-positive cohort. Secondary objective: To determine whether the application of a tick-sheet reduces the inter-reader variability of CXR interpretation in a group.
