Can they opt to have a chest x-ray instead of a TB test?

While a chest radiograph is useful when evaluating someone for active TB disease, it does not identify TB infection. A TB test can indicate if someone has been infected. An employee’s baseline TB test result allows the employer to compare subsequent TB test results, if necessary, to identify a potential work exposure. For this reason, WA State DOH TB program does not recommend a chest radiograph unless the employee has a positive TB test or is symptomatic for TB.
