Before Obtaining Tb Tests in New York

Tuberculosis is airborne and highly contagious. For this reason, occupations working with large groups of people or communities with weakened immune systems require a TB test. Mobile Health offers two methods of testing for tuberculosis: a PPD implant and a QuantiFERON blood test.

  • During a PPD test, the patient receives a shot under the top layer of skin, on their forearm. The PPD implant contains Tuberculosis antigens called purified protein derivatives (PPD). If the patient has been exposed to the tuberculosis bacteria, a firm red bump will develop at the injection site within two days. The PPD skin test is also known as a Mantoux test.
  • QuantiFERON tuberculosis test (QFT) provides an alternative to the PPD implant method.  The The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the QuantiFERON blood test to diagnose latent or active tuberculosis in a patient. The QFT test typically only requires one visit to a clinic.

Whether you obtain TB tests in New York or elsewhere, cases of positive TB test results require a follow-up chest x-ray for visual confirmation.  False positives may occur with both screenings. Consequently, the only way to confirm active tuberculosis in a patient is through a chest x-ray.

Chest x-rays are available to all patients who have a positive PPD skin test or QuantiFERON test result at Mobile Health.
