TB Screening

  • Tuberculin Skin Test (TST)
    Tuberculin skin tests (TST) are administered to detect the presence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB).
  • TB Blood Tests
    An Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA), or TB blood test, is a method for detecting infection with M. tuberculosis. It is an acceptable alternative to the TB skin test in most situations.
