Delft Digital X-ray and CAD4TB Software in South African Prisons

 

Early in 2015, the South African Health Minister and Chair of the Stop TB Partnership Coordinating Board, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, announced that he was introducing 100% regular screening for tuberculosis for all inmates in South African prisons, as well as for their family members. The decision is significant given that rates of tuberculosis are considerably higher in prisons than within the general population.

 

In September of this year, The Union took a small group of South African and international journalists to visit Pollsmoor Prison on the outskirts of Cape Town in South Africa to observe the newly introduced South African screening policy. Pollsmoor was chosen because it was the prison where Nelson Mandela himself contracted tuberculosis while an inmate there for much of the 1980s.

Computer  Aided Detection for TB (CAD4TB)

 

With annually 9 million new cases and 1.3 million deaths worldwide, TB is the second

cause of death after HIV/AIDS. Delft Imaging Systems' certified CAD4TB, Computer

Aided Detection for TB, is a software package that automatically analyzes chest x-rays

and is capable of detecting abnormalities that may likely indicate TB. With DIS CAD4TB,

skilled radiologists are no longer required to interpret chest-x-rays enabling screening

of remote populations in underserviced areas.
