We are moving out! As of December our office will be in 's-Hertogenbosch. We're very excited to start 2020 in our new and inspiring office.
It has been 3 weeks since the 50th Union Conference in India. We were once again inspired by the whole TB community and how we are all very dedicated to ending tuberculosis.
We are very excited to share this great milestone with you: more than 5 million people worldwide have been screened for tuberculosis with our CAD4TB artificial intelligence software!
The TREATS Tuberculosis (TB) Prevalence Survey commenced in South Africa with a pilot in Wellington from 4-8 March 2019. The intensive diagnostic phase (IDP) subsequently started in Luvuyo site in Khayelitsha township on 25 March 2019.
This study demonstrates that CAD4TB was better than human readers in detecting bacteriologically confirmed TB. Furthermore, the study showed that the latest version of CAD4TB showed improved performance.
Researchers have concluded that results from the HPTN071 (PopART) trial provide evidence of a 20 percent reduction in HIV incidence when communities are proactively offered HIV testing and linkages to treatment and prevention.
We have launched a new project in Mozambique! Last May, our EasyDR X-ray machine with CAD4TB software was installed in the Occupational Health Centre of Ressano Garcia, Mozambique. The project focuses on screening the migrating mine workers from Mozambique to South-Africa.
"Binnen twintig seconden is de gemaakte foto geanalyseerd en is duidelijk hoe waarschijnlijk het is dat iemand tuberculose heeft. Dat komt omdat onze virtuele dokter honderdduizenden beelden heeft gezien uit vijftig verschillende landen. Dat maakt hem slimmer, sneller en accurater dan een ervaren radioloog"
TREATS has been operating at various sites in Zambia, including the Chawama First Level Hospital in Lusaka, which has accommodated the TREATS team since April 2018. Due to increased demand for space at the hospital, a brand new building has opened to house TREATS for the duration of the project.
