The Cochrane Library contains more than 140 Cochrane Reviews of the accuracy of diagnostic tests, covering a very wide range of conditions. One of these reviews, on a test used to detect tuberculosis in the lungs, was updated for the third time in February 2021 and Karen Steingart from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK speaks with first author, Jerry Zifodya from Tulane University in New Orleans, USA about the latest findings in this podcast. This review is also included in the Cochrane Library Special Collection for World Tuberculosis Day on 'Diagnosing tuberculosis'.
