Additional ACMG Recommendations

Slide 11

September 2011

The ACMG recommendations also state that further studies are needed to determine the utility of chromosomal microarray for individuals with growth retardation, speech delay, and other indications, although we do certainly see testing ordered for these indications and, in our opinion, it is appropriate to consider testing in these clinical scenarios. Additionally, all results should be confirmed by a second test method, such as FISH analysis, parental evaluation is often necessary to interpret test results, and a clinical genetic evaluation and counseling is appropriate.
