BACKGROUND Sputum smear microscopy is the main tool for the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Limited sensitivity of smear microscopy and patient dropouts (PDs) are the important obstacles of national TB control programs. OBJECTIVES (1) To assess the diagnostic utility of the same day (SS2)(More)
The near future of image processing techniques state the compatibility issues of applied algorithms with storage techniques and data transmission across noisy environment. Image compression is a vital element that is employed due to its characteristics of image size reduction without considerable data loss. This paper employs an SAR image compression(More)
INTRODUCTION The tuberculosis control program is based on a felt need-oriented basis. The diagnosis is mainly microbiological. However, sputum smear-negative Acid Fast Bacilli (AFB) cases with suspected radiological findings can be problematic in diagnosis. OBJECTIVES To confirm the diagnosis of tuberculosis early, in smear-negative AFB cases by using a(More)
A 30-year-old man presented with a fairly large intramedullary mass lesion involving virtually the entire spinal cord. It was hyperintense on both T1W and T2W sequences, with signal suppression on fat-saturation images. Subsequent noncontrast CT scan of the spine confirmed the presence of fat and calcification within the lesion, thus leading to the(More)
