I have a patient whom I am seeing for office consult for Positive quantiferon gold test. What ICD 10 code I can use?

Positive quantiferon gold test is a diagnostic test done for latent tuberculosis infection. Appropriate ICD 10 CM code that should be used for inactive tuberculosis or latent tuberculosis is ICD 10 CM code R76.12 (Nonspecific reaction to QuantiFERON-TB test (QFT) without active tuberculosis).
Also, use ICD 10 CM code Z11.1 - Encounter for screening for respiratory tuberculosis.
