Prenatal diagnostics (cytogenetics)
Cytogenetics methods are used to detect chromosome changes in terms of quantity and structure.
A prenatal chromosome analysis can be performed on different cells.
A prenatal chromosome analysis can be conducted in the following cases:
• advanced maternal age
• familial chromosome changes
• previous pregnancy with chromosomal problems
• repeated miscarriages
• abnormal ultrasound findings
• abnormal results of non-invasive screening tests (e.g. first trimester screening, NIPT)
