All individuals who are members of the National Birth Defects Prevention Network, employees of birth defects program, birth defects researchers, individuals who collect data from medical records or who code birth defects data are encouraged to register.
The presentation aims to help describe the testing for chromosomal abnormalities being used in a clinical setting to diagnose the cause(s) of birth defects, to understand the nomenclature used to report normal or abnormal test results, and to differentiate the relevant test results to be abstracted from a medical record for a birth defects surveillance program.
