- Interpret pediatric TB radiographic changes during the course of treatment to inform clinical-decision making and improve management of young patients
- Be familiar with normal chest radiographic findings and variations in the pediatric population to improve accuracy when reviewing radiographs for purposes of tuberculosis diagnosis and management
- Recognize common TB manifestations on chest radiographs by age group to make accurate diagnoses based on these readings
