Cell-free DNA Testing for Fetal Aneuploidy: Lessons Learned and Implications for Clinical Practice

GenomeWebinar

Director of Fetal Medicine,
Harris Birthright Research Center for Fetal Medicine,
King's College Hospital

This webinar will discuss the evolution of fetal aneuploidy screening and the most recent evidence around the implementation of prenatal cell-free DNA testing in clinical practice.

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) by cell-free DNA testing has rapidly become an integral part of clinical care, and clinical studies demonstrating its high accuracy for trisomy 21 are familiar to most obstetric providers.

In this webinar, Kypros Nicolaides, Professor and Director of Fetal Medicine at King’s College, London, will review the most recent evidence demonstrating the clinical value of cell-free DNA testing in prenatal care, discuss different implementation models, and share his own experience with cell-free DNA testing for fetal aneuploidy. He will also discuss the patient perspective and how different factors may influence the choices and preferences of pregnant women for prenatal care.
