Yield of interview screening and chest X-ray abnormalities in a tuberculosis prevalence survey
The International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, 05/24/2012
Hoa NB et al. – In prevalence surveys, screening by pre–structured interview is insufficient, and should be supplemented with chest X–ray (CXR) to achieve sufficient identification of TB cases. The effect of incomplete participation in the full screening procedure may be substantial and should be adjusted for in the analysis.
