Title:
The Impact of a Tick-Sheet in Improving Interpretation Accuracy of Chest Radiographs by Non-Specialists in an HIV positive cohort

Kosack, Cara; Mesic, Anita; Spijker, Saskia; Bonnet, Maryline; Joekes, Elizabeth
Abstract:
Study objective 3.1 Primary objective 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 nonspecialists, in an HIV-positive cohort. 3.2 Secondary objective To determine whether the application of a tick-sheet reduces the inter-reader variability of CXR interpretation in a group of non-specialists by comparing the inter-reader agreement before and after intervention.
