Daniel Escobar MD, Angela Pikus MD and Alex Blackwell MD curate and present a series of Adult Emergency Medicine Radiology topics each month. These self-guided educational slides were first published on EMGuideWire.com and peer reviewed by Professor Michael Gibbs and Sean Fox, MD
This months Adult Chest X-Ray Case Studies presentation focuses on imaging in patients with tuberculosis (TB) along with a series of references pertaining to the evidence-based assessment and management of the disease.
We are fortunate that Dr. Michael Leonard, a nationally known TB expert from our own Department of Medicine, has provided valuable input with the creation of this work.
This ongoing chest X-ray interpretation series is proudly sponsored by the Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Carolinas Medical Center. The goal is to promote widespread mastery of CXR interpretation. There is no personal health information [PHI] within, and ages have been changed to protect patient confidentiality.
