Figure 2. Kaplan-Meier Curves of Time to M. tuberculosis Detection.. From: Microscopic-Observation Drug-Susceptibility Assay for the Diagnosis of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Time to positivity for Mycobacterium tuberculosis detection for microscopic-observation drug-susceptibility (MODS) and reference standard culture (manual mycobacterial growth indicator tube (MGIT)). Median time to positivity was significantly shorter for MODS than for manual MGIT (MODS 7 days [IQR 7–15 days] vs. MGIT 12 days [IQR 6–16 days]; p<0.001).
