Hi thanks for asking question.
For Tuberculosis diagnosis mostly symptoms of it present like cough, fever, weight loss etc.
Still for its diagnosis sputum examination done with chest x ray.
If they show negative result then chances of tuberculosis very less.
You have done ct scan also.
If still want further investigation then genetic study available like PCR.
I hope my suggestion will help you regarding diagnosis of tuberculosis.
Wish you good health
