Please bring the following with you to the appointment:
This is how the TB test is done
Adults (18 and older)
- We take a chest X-ray to see if you have tuberculosis.
- You may receive an invitation for a skin test (Mantoux test) after four weeks. This test shows whether you have ever been in contact with tuberculosis.
Children up to the age of 18 must have a skin test (Mantoux test). If the skin test and an additional blood test are positive, a chest X-ray will follow.
