Hi! it's better to advice ur girlfriend to take another sputum test. then if the result is negative she doe's not have PTB.  It just happens that when we get xray then the impression would be a ptb, it  may be a scars of ptb but was already cured. Sputum is the best to test the presence of the bacteria called Myobacterium tuberculosis.
