This diagnostic method is used primarily for the screening of tuberculosis and malignant neoplasms of the lungs.
Tuberculosis is a serious disease that requires vigilance from everyone without exception. She emphasized this Valentina Ginzburg, director of the Department of Health Care on the World Day against this disease.
In 2022, the incidence of tuberculosis in the capital decreased by 12.8%, and the death rate almost doubled. However, according to the Director of the Department, focusing on numbers due to the same migration is currently not very appropriate.
“It is much more important to focus on timely detection and provision of conditions for sustainable treatment of patients. And for this, a well-coordinated system works in Kyiv, and together with partners – public organizations, a number of effective initiatives are implemented.” — she added.
Work schedule of the mobile fluorograph:

Operating hours of the fluorograph: from 08:00 to 15:00.
Today, according to WHO standards, preference is given to the outpatient model of treatment. Hospitalization in an anti-tuberculosis hospital is carried out strictly according to indications, if it is impossible to provide treatment in outpatient conditions. The Director of the Department noted that in 2022, the share of tuberculosis patients treated on an outpatient basis will be 70%.
It is important that the treatment of tuberculosis is completely free. The Kyiv Phthisiopulmonology Center is equipped with anti-tuberculosis drugs and drugs to eliminate side effects.
The most important thing during treatment is to strictly follow all the prescriptions and recommendations of the doctor and in no case to interrupt the started therapy in order to avoid such a phenomenon as chemoresistance: when the drugs lose their effect on the infection.
