DxTB highlights regions of a chest X-ray that have specific abnormalities associated with tuberculosis (TB) and helps radiologists to prioritize and reduce their workload. DxTB is an adaptive system that evolves over time based on every new X-ray read in the field. DxTB also automatically generates Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) standard radiology reports.
