There is a growing interest in the automated analysis of chest X-Ray (CXR) as a sensitive and inexpensive means of screening susceptible populations for pulmonary tuberculosis. [...] Key Method Version 6 of CAD4TB was released in 2018 and is here tested on an independent dataset of 5565 CXR images with GeneXpert (Xpert) sputum test results available (854 Xpert positive subjects).Expand
Deep learning, computer-aided radiography reading for tuberculosis: a diagnostic accuracy study from a tertiary hospital in India
TLDR
There is likely a larger role for CAD software as a triage test for PTB at the primary care level in settings where access to radiologists in limited, and larger prospective studies that can better assess heterogeneity in important subgroups are needed.
Computer-aided interpretation of chest radiography reveals the spectrum of tuberculosis in rural South Africa
TLDR
While CAD4TBv6 has the potential to replace radiologists for triaging CXRs in TB prevalence surveys, population-specific piloting is necessary to set the appropriate triaging thresholds and work on image analysis strategies is needed to identify radiologically subtle active TB.
Diagnostic accuracy of computer aided reading of chest x-ray in screening for pulmonary tuberculosis in comparison with Gene-Xpert
Background & Objectives: Pakistan ranked fifth amongst 22 high-burden Tuberculosis countries, and it is  an epidemic in Pakistan, hence screening is performed nationally, as part of the ambitious
Computer-aided interpretation of chest radiography to detect TB in rural South Africa
TLDR
It is concluded that computer-aided CXR interpretation can be useful in population-based screening in HIV-endemic settings, but threshold selection should be guided by setting-specific piloting and priorities.
COVID-19 on Chest Radiographs: A Multireader Evaluation of an Artificial Intelligence System
TLDR
The performance of an artificial intelligence system in the detection of coronavirus disease 2019 on chest radiographs was comparable with that of six independent readers at their highest possible sensitivities.
Application of artificial intelligence in digital chest radiography reading for pulmonary tuberculosis screening
TLDR
Recently, WHO published a rapid communication which stated that CAD may be used as an alternative to human reader interpretation of plain digital CXRs for screening and triage of TB.
Computer-aided covid-19 patient screening using chest images (X-Ray and CT scans)
TLDR
Computer aided automatic covid -19 detection from chest X-ray images showed promising results to be used as screening tool during the covid-19 outbreak and may help to manage patients better in case access to PCR testing is not possible or to detect patients with symptoms missed in a first round of PCR testing.
Image Features for Tuberculosis Classification in Digital Chest Radiographs
IMAGE FEATURES FOR TUBERCULOSIS CLASSIFICATION IN DIGITAL CHEST RADIOGRAPHS by Brian Hooper June 2020 Tuberculosis (TB) is a respiratory disease which affects millions of people each year, accounting
Automatic Tuberculosis Detection Using Chest X-ray Analysis With Position Enhanced Structural Information
TLDR
The goal is to find a simple feature descriptor, instead of a combination of several ones, -proposed and promoted in recent years' literature, which can properly and simply describe the different pathological alterations in the lungs.
Accuracy of computer-aided chest X-ray screening in the Kenya National Tuberculosis Prevalence Survey
TLDR
CAD4TBv6 met the optimal TPP for TB community screening, and it is recommended that an adaptive approach to threshold setting is adopted based on participant characteristics.

TLDR
The software could identify more than half of the normal images in a TB screening setting while maintaining high sensitivity, and may therefore be used for triage.
Diagnostic Accuracy of Computer-Aided Detection of Pulmonary Tuberculosis in Chest Radiographs: A Validation Study from Sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
CAD4TB accurately distinguished between the chest radiographs of culture-positive TB cases and controls and was significantly more accurate for the discrimination of smear-positive cases against non TB patients than for smear-negative cases.
An automated tuberculosis screening strategy combining X-ray-based computer-aided detection and clinical information
TLDR
This framework is evaluated on a database containing 392 patient records from suspected TB subjects prospectively recruited in Cape Town, South Africa and indicates that combining CAD and clinical information to estimate the risk of active disease is a promising tool for TB screening.
Evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of Computer-Aided Detection of tuberculosis on Chest radiography among private sector patients in Pakistan
TLDR
Using CAD4TB in combination with age and gender data enhanced the performance of the software, and CAD4 TB, as a triage tool could minimize use of Xpert in low resource settings.
Automatic versus human reading of chest X-rays in the Zambia National Tuberculosis Prevalence Survey.
TLDR
The performance of automatic CXR readings is comparable with that of human experts in a TB prevalence survey setting using culture as reference, similar to that of field and central readers.
Automated chest-radiography as a triage for Xpert testing in resource-constrained settings: a prospective study of diagnostic accuracy and costs
Molecular tests hold great potential for tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis, but are costly, time consuming, and HIV-infected patients are often sputum scarce. Therefore, alternative approaches are needed.
Using artificial intelligence to read chest radiographs for tuberculosis detection: A multi-site evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of three deep learning systems
TLDR
A retrospective evaluation of three DL systems for detecting TB-associated abnormalities in chest radiographs from outpatients in Nepal and Cameroon found that using DL systems to read CXRs could reduce the number of Xpert MTB/RIF tests needed by 66% while maintaining sensitivity at 95% or better.
Localized Energy-Based Normalization of Medical Images: Application to Chest Radiography
TLDR
It is concluded that the normalization can be successfully applied in chest radiography and makes supervised systems more generally applicable to data from different sources.
Choosing algorithms for TB screening: a modelling study to compare yield, predictive value and diagnostic burden
TLDR
Generally an algorithm composed of CXR screening followed by confirmatory testing with XP can achieve the lowest NNS and highest PPV, and is the least amenable to setting-specific variation, however resource requirements for tests and equipment may be prohibitive in some settings and a reason to opt for symptom screening and SSM.
