In brief: Quantiferon TB test

A normal, healthy person in such a situation can do a Quantiferon TB blood test.
If the result is negative, then it is very unlikely that one had TB in the past. If both a PPD test and a Quantiferon TB test are negative, in an otherwise healthy person, that would be good evidence of not having had a TB infection.
