In order to find the most precise and practical procedure to record the prevalence or tuberculosis in group screenings, 7405 students staying at Hacettepe University dormitories between 1984 and 1987 were screened by a different methods used in tuberculosis screening, namely microfilms, tuberculin tests and tuberculosis symptoms (cough, hemoptysis, weight loss, etc).
The average sensitivity or these tests were round to be as follows: microfilm 6.3%, tuberculin 45.8%, screening or tuberculosis symptoms 60.4%. Tge most ideal tuberculosis group screening method was round to be detailed examination or cases with symptoms of tuberculosis plus cases who are at the pathological border in tuberculin skin tests (with BCG inoculations >=20 mm and without BCG inoculation >=10 mm).
