Reliability and value Xpert/MBT/Rif for the TB patients have already being underwent by TB treatment
There`s one a very interesting question for me and a huge desire to learn your oppinion about that topic. How TB treatment already being done for patient influence on reliability and value Xpert/MBT/Rif. How must be considered results of POC test of a patient under TB treatment during a day, a month? a week, for example. I really understand that Xpert/MBT must be provided before starting of DOT, after X-Ray and so on.But unfortunatelly in real life we have a lot of new SS- cases where DOT has been undertaking before adequite micribiological and clinical diagnosis. And how do you think if whether there `s a sense to fulfil Xpert/MBT/Rif for the patients`re being treated when we`re waiting for MGIT and LI results?
Thanks in advance
