The genetics team will often use special tests to help with diagnosing the cause of a medical problem. Our genetic specialists identify the appropriate tests to order for each patient and family. The results of genetic tests are not always straightforward, which often makes them challenging to interpret. The physicians and genetic counselors use their expertise to explain results in a way that patients and families understand.

Some of the tests we perform include:

  • Chromosome analysis
  • Chromosome microarray testing
  • Fragile X testing
  • Single gene or multiple gene panels
  • Whole exome sequencing
  • Imaging tests:
    • CT scans
    • MRI
    • X-rays
    • Ultrasounds
