pathoTHE TOPIC ’Awareness is the CURE to eradicating tuberculosis from our country.’Tuberculosis is a growing burden in the country even though DOTS treatment can ensure complete cure in most cases. Many patients remain undiagnosed as doctors rely on conventional TB diagnosis methods which are often cumbersome and slow. One of the crucial barriers preventing an effective response to the challenges of Multidrug resistant TB (MDR) and extensively drug resistance (XDR TB) has failed to convincingly diagnose active TB in most cases, hence leading to poor patient compliance. With new methods available TB diagnosis can be conclusively established with high sensitivity and specificity within few hours. To spread awareness on new methods in TB diagnosis SMRC’s V.M. Salgaocar hospital organised a Clinical- Pathology meet to make doctors aware of the broader horizon in TB diagnosis on 13th October, Tuesday, 2015 in SMRC Hospital conference hall.
