Tuberculosis: From Head to Toe

Approximately 25 percent of the world population is infected with tuberculosis (TB), a disease that has resurged due to HIV, drug resistance, and socioeconomic factors. Imaging plays a central role in the diagnosis and management of TB. This course reviews manifestations of the disease throughout the body from head to toe. ARRS is proud to collaborate with the Sociedad Mexicana de Radiología e Imagen (SMRI) to present this course.
