Test. Better. With the marked increase in the use of cell-free DNA screening (cfDNA/NIPT) in clinical practice, many non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) innovations were introduced as screening technology rapidly expanded over the past decade. But which NIPT innovations are likely to tangibly improve outcomes for your practice and patients? Which NIPT innovations improve test performance and bolster confidence knowing a screening result is reliable?
This webinar will present a new bioinformatics metric which will support counseling for patients with positive results. Using real-world case studies expert speakers will discuss enhancements to test reporting and how these improvements impact the positive predictive value associated with the result. This comprehensive, evidenced-based webinar will help you: Test. Better.
