2.4.2. Other screening tests

There are currently inadequate data to extrapolate use of CXR, point-of-care C-reactive protein (CRP)-based TB screening or mWRDs as screening tests in adults to children aged under 10 years living with HIV. CXR can be used for screening children living with HIV who are close contacts of people with infectious TB (see Section 2.3.1). Tests for TB infection such as IGRA are not useful for TB screening.
