1 Prenatal Screening

Prenatal Screening 

Congenital malformations can complicate approximately 3–5% of pregnancies. Many congenital malformations are associated with aneuploidy, structural chromosomal rearrangements (large or submicroscopic), and copy number variants (CNVs). While some of these mutations can be diagnosed with G-band karyotyping, QF-PCR, or microarray analysis, interpreting monogenic disorders prenatally using next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques allows a better and more accurate assessment.

Achieving a genetic diagnosis in fetal life may improve clinical care by informing individualized genetic counseling for current and future pregnancies, allowing discussion regarding prognosis and treatment with the appropriate pediatric specialists. It may support parents in decision-making regarding the termination of pregnancy.
