|Prenatal Trio Whole Exome Sequencing|
|Test Information:||The Prenatal Trio Whole Exome Sequencing (Prenatal Trio WES) test is ordered by a physician and must be accompanied with a consent form and detailed clinical information. In general, the test is used when prenatal imaging detects an anomaly that strongly suggests that there is an underlying genetic etiology. Prenatal Trio WES is often considered only after fetal chromosome microarray analysis has been non-diagnostic. See (Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)) for additional details.|
Fetal report includes:|
Pathogenic or likely pathogenic variants in disease genes related to the prenatal indications.
Variants in disease genes unrelated to the prenatal indications but likely to cause significant disorders during childhood.
Parental report include:
Pathogenic variants in genes included in the ACMG policy statement regarding recommendations for reporting of incidental findings will be reported as medically actionable.
Carrier status for autosomal recessive conditions will include disorders recommended for reproductive screening by professional societies such as ACMG or ACOG.
