Screening For Tuberculosis

This test checks to see if you have been infected with tuberculosis, commonly known as TB. TB is a serious bacterial infection that mainly affects the lungs. It can also affect other parts of the body, including the brain, spine, and kidneys. TB is spread from person to person through coughing or sneezing.

Not everyone infected with TB gets sick. Some people have an inactive form of the infection called latent TB. When you have latent TB, you don’t feel sick and can’t spread the disease to others.

Can be screened with a simple Mantoux test or a more advanced endometrial tissue biopsy
