QuantiFERON Tuberculosis (TB) Screening
The QuantiFERON Tuberculosis Screening test is vital for individuals exposed to TB risks, such as healthcare workers, close contacts of active TB cases, and those in TB-endemic regions. It detects TB by measuring interferon-gamma response to TB antigens, offering more accuracy than skin tests and uninfluenced by prior TB vaccines. This diagnostic tool detects latent TB and guides TB management in high-risk groups. Precise test interpretation and personalized guidance are crucial, underscoring the importance of consulting with a healthcare provider.
