Prenatal Genome Screening: Understanding Options, Interpreting Results

With California's embrace of cell-free DNA screening and the increasing use of gene sequencing, pregnant patients have questions about what they can learn from these tests and what to make of the findings. In this talk, perinatologist Annalisa Post, MD, discusses the information that various prenatal genetic tests can and can’t provide, and how to assess accuracy, offering a valuable tool for individualizing results. She also explains the differences between whole exome and whole genome sequencing and when rapid whole genome sequencing – the latest option – has particular value.
