Impact of x-ray screening programmes for active tuberculosis in homeless populations: a systematic review of original studies
OPEN Journal of public health (Oxford, England) | 27 Feb 2015
Tuberculosis prevalence is generally low in industrialized countries, but many cities now operate surveillance programmes to actively screen for tuberculosis in known risk groups including homeless people. While several studies have reported on individual screening programmes, this study is the first known systematic review specifically looking at chest x-ray screening programmes for tuberculosis in homeless populations.
