Chest X-Rays (CXR) play a pivotal role within diagnostic algorithms for TB in children, and so the interpretation of CXRs is now more relevant than ever in the fight against child TB.
Based on our Diagnostic CXR Atlas for Tuberculosis in Children: a Guide to Chest X-ray Interpretation (2nd edition, 2022), this course is designed to provide pragmatic guidance to healthcare professionals working in the diagnosis and management of TB in children.
Take this course today to understand how CXR fits into the diagnostic process, build your confidence in identifying paediatric CXRs, and learning which CXR features are most useful in diagnosing paediatric TB.
La radiographie thoracique occupe actuellement une place centrale dans l’arsenal diagnostique de la tuberculose. Cet important outil délaissé pendant longtemps du fait de quelques contraintes liées à son coût d’acquisition et à la disponibilité de ressources humaines qualifiées est devenu de nos jours de plus en plus accessible.
Il y a donc nécessité que les praticiens surtout ceux exerçant dans les régions les plus éloignées soient outillés pour l’interprétation d’une radiographie thoracique. Si vous êtes médecin exerçant au sein des Programmes Nationaux de lutte contre la Tuberculose (PNT) au niveau national, régional ou périphérique, ou clinicien exerçant en milieu hospitalier, ce cours est pour vous.
Ce cours, entièrement libre d’accès, a été développé dans le cadre du projet CETA sur financement de l’Agence Française de Développement.
