  • Overview

    Tuberculosis affects the lives of one third of the world's population. How are newly advancing optical imaging technologies poised to help clinicians achieve more accurate diagnosis and treatment for patients with this serious disease? Tune in to hear host Dr. Mary Leuchars explore with Dr. Jeffrey Cirillo, associate professor of microbial and molecular pathogenesis at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, the optical imaging techniques under development to directly detect TB at low levels. Dr. Cirillo explains how the light waves can be used to detect and definitely confirm tubercolosis without invasive techniques, which currently is not possible using CT scans.
