Original Article

TBDx automated microscopy is a novel technology that processes digital microscope images to identify acid-fast bacilli (AFB). TBDx as part of a diagnostic algorithm could improve the diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB), but its performance characteristics have not been formally tested. The objective was to evaluate the performance of the TBDx automated microscopy system in algorithms for diagnosis of TB.
