From the CDC website:
There are two kinds of tests that are used to detect TB bacteria in the body: the TB skin test (TST) and TB blood tests. A positive TB skin test or TB blood test only tells that a person has been infected with TB bacteria. It does not tell whether the person has latent TB infection (LTBI) or has progressed to TB disease. Other tests, such as a chest x-ray and a sample of sputum, are needed to see whether the person has TB disease.
If a person is found to be infected with TB bacteria, other tests are needed to see if the person has latent TB infection or TB disease.
Certain people should be tested for TB infection because they are at higher risk of being infected with TB bacteria, including:
Many people who have latent TB infection never develop TB disease. But some people who have latent TB infection are more likely to develop TB disease than others. Those at high risk for developing TB disease include:
TB tests are generally not needed for people with a low risk of infection with TB bacteria.
