Genetic testing can help medical professionals:
• Identify an inherited condition or disease risk
• Diagnose genetic conditions
• Recommend personalized treatment and prevention options
Every patient who would like to know more about her pregnancy should be offered noninvasive prenatal test (NIPT). Research has shown that NIPTs are far more accurate than standard screenings in predicting the risk of genetic disorders (up to 99 percent accurate for Down's syndrome), while creating far fewer false alarms (false positives).
NIPT results will help you guide your patients in making informed decisions. Once the results of your patient's NIPT are back, you can pair them with the results of a first trimester ultrasound to determine whether further testing is needed. You may then recommend following up with amniocentesis or chorionic villi sampling (CVS to confirm the results.
