ScreenTB is an interactive tool created by WHO to help users to implement the best suited strategy for the systematic screening of tuberculosis.
ScreenTB complements the latest WHO guidelines and handbook on tuberculosis screening.

Test accuracy and costs

For each screening and diagnostic test, the test accuracy is defined by the sensitivity (the proportion of those with TB correctly identified) and specificity (the proportion of those without TB correctly identified). Values for the sensitivity and specificity of each screening and diagnostic test are preset, based on systematic review data. Estimates for the cost of screening or diagnostic tests are derived from WHO estimates and are calculated uniquely for each country. The accuracy and cost estimates can be changed, or new custom screening tools can be created, by clicking the “Customize tools” button.

Select the Screening tools that you plan to use for each of the risk groups identified before moving to the next step.
