Reimagining TB Care - Intelligent Insights and Improved Workflows
Tuberculosis (TB) presents a global threat in the world and according to the recent STOP TB report, TB deaths have increased for the first time in over a decade, an upward trend that is expected to worsen in 2021. For most patients, X-rays are the first diagnostic imaging step on their path to a definitive diagnosis of TB, which can save hundreds of lives if detected early. Therefore FujiFilm and Qure.ai have partnered to offer quality diagnostics to communities around the world.
