Diagnosis of tuberculosis through breath test: A systematic review

This is a new systematic review on breath tests for TB. The low to moderate strength of evidence studies show that an electronic nose had high sensitivity and specificity, while other devices had moderate to high sensitivity and low to moderate specificity. The authors conclude that further improvements are needed before breath test devices can be introduced into the routine TB diagnostic work flow.
