Novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and tuberculosis (TB) are two key challenges that have severely unsettled the world. We focus on the role of digital chest X-ray and High-Resolution CT chest for screening.  Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled, instant triage and smart reporting ensures fast turn-around times for resource constrained units. Innovating TB screening in times of COVID-19 pandemic can help deal with the two challenges in one setting. Expert panelists from leading hospitals, governmental organizations, NGO’s share their valuable experiences to showcase how AI is a force multiplier for public health screening.

Target audience: government bodies, non- profit organizations/ non- government organizations, foundations/trusts, hospitals.
