To meet the urgent global demand for technical assistance on the use of CAD and X-ray in TB programs, Stop TB Partnership’s Focus Group on AI-based Imaging for TB (FG-AITB) was launched as a global platform that brings together prospective, early, and experienced implementers of these technologies.
The objectives of the Focus Group are:
- Create a space for early, existing, and prospective CAD implementers and country programs to exchange experiences and lessons learned about using CAD in the TB response.
- Share resources and provide technical support to implement and scale-up these solutions.
- Facilitate global south-south connection, learning, and exchange in this subject area.
The Focus Group is currently hosting a series of interactive webinars for programmes to learn more about implementation of CAD and ultra-portable X-ray machines, featuring expert guest presenters from CAD developers to global policymakers, and experienced implementers:
- Nigeria (webinar 3, done)
Each webinar focuses on a topic of concern for members including CAD vendor selection, threshold selection, safety and regulation for using ultra-portable X-rays.
