GLIOF - Overview: 1p/19q Deletion in Gliomas, FISH, Tissue

Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: GLIOF    
1p/19q Deletion in Gliomas, FISH, Tissue

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Aids in diagnosing oligodendroglioma tumors and predicting the response of an oligodendroglioma to therapy

 

May be useful in tumors with a complex "hybrid" morphology requiring differentiation from pure astrocytomas to support the presence of oligodendroglial differentiation/lineage

 

Indicated when a diagnosis of oligodendroglioma, both low-grade World Health Organization (WHO, grade II) and anaplastic (WHO, grade III) is rendered

 

Strongly recommended when a diagnosis of mixed oligoastrocytomas is rendered

Reflex Tests Lists test(s) that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial test(s)

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

This test does not include a pathology consult. If a pathology consultation is requested, 70012 / Pathology Consultation should be ordered and the appropriate FISH test will be ordered and performed at an additional charge.

 

This test includes a charge for application of the first probe set (2 FISH probes) and professional interpretation of results. Additional charges will be incurred for all reflex probes performed. Analysis charges will be incurred based on the number of cells analyzed per probe set. If no cells are available for analysis, no analysis charges will be incurred.

 

Chromosomal microarray (CMAPT / Chromosomal Microarray, Tumor, Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded), rather than FISH, may be of benefit to evaluate for acquired alterations associated with the molecular classification of glioma.(1) See Cytogenetic Analysis of Glioma in Special Instructions.

Special Instructions and Forms Describes specimen collection and preparation information, test algorithms, and other information pertinent to test. Also includes pertinent information and consent forms to be used when requesting a particular test
