Patient :This has to do with tuberculosis. I am living in South Korea. I went to a clinic and had a chest xray and the doctor said that I don't have it but that apparently I DID have it at some point. He suggested I go to a hospital and get a chest CT scan.Question: Is this (chest CT scan) necessary and will i need to take medication since I apparently had TB?
