Why Test for TB?

Tuberculosis is a bacteria that can be very contagious. To help prevent TB infections spreading in the community, testing of certain members is done routinely. TB testing can identify people who have a TB infection but no symptoms.

Positive PPD Results:

Positive PPD results most likely mean that you have been exposed to some proteins of the Tuberculosis bacteria (either through the BCG vaccination, a past infection or a current infection). Patients with Positive PPD Results should never have another PPD again as it will be positive.

Most require a Chest X-ray to confirm that you do not have active Tuberculosis and some require a blood test called Quantiferon-TB Gold.
