We offer the opportunity to receive screening for chromosomal abnormalities including Down syndrome - PRENASCAN. There are certain birth defects that can be tested for prenatally - before a baby is born. The risk of having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality, such as Down syndrome, increases with the mother's age.
Project PRENASCAN has introduced noninvasive prenatal testing of fetal chromosomal disorders into clinical practice. Included are screening for - trisomies of chromosomes No. 21 - Down syndrome, No. 18 - Edwards syndrome and No. 13 - Patau syndrome. Risk of other rare chromosomal disorders including those of the sex chromosome can be assessed as well.
