Obstetrics and Gynecology

Prenatal Diagnosis & Genomics (Expired)

November 16, 2017: 9:00AM - 12:00PM (3 hours)

This is an exciting time to explore the use of Genetics in Obstetrics and Gynecology. The Human Genome Project, completed in 2003, has lead to many advances. The system of Prenatal Screening for Genetic Disorders has evolved from a Chemical risk based assessment to a Chromosome based exploration. We are now able to assess risk for Gynecologic cancers using mapped genes. Counseling patients on the use and limitations of these diagnostic tests is paramount to our present practice of medicine.
