Possible exposure to TB

  1. Hey there,
    I may have been exposed to a patient with active TB less than a week ago. I happen to be due for a TB test this week and was wondering how long after exposure does it take to test positive? I usually get the quantiferon gold test rather than the skin test. Im starting to get pretty anxious and would really like some insight on how this process goes!
