ISPD Position Statement — Glenn Palomaki

The International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis (ISPD) has published a position statement in Prenatal Diagnosis on the use of cell-free DNA testing to screen multifetal pregnancies for Down syndrome and other autosomal trisomies. The position statement includes recommendations on the use of cell-free DNA testing, noting that the literature shows such testing to be appropriate for screening twin pregnancies and may also be a viable option for screening triplet pregnancies. This BONUS webinar will feature an overview of the recently published article.

Please note: No continuing education units are available for this session.
