Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing for Fetal Aneuploidy with 22q11.2 Microdeletion
Ordering Recommendation

Screens for whole chromosome fetal aneuploidy involving chromosomes, 13, 18, 21, X, Y, and triploidy. Also screens for microdeletions causing 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (DiGeorge/velocardiofacial syndrome [VCFS]). Useful when the fetus is identified as having a heart defect and/or other findings suggestive of del22q11.2.

Testing utilizes a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)/informatics-based approach to detect fetal copy number for the five chromosomes responsible for the majority of live-birth aneuploidies (chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X, Y, and triploidy) and certain specific microdeletion syndromes (see current list of microdeletion syndromes listed under "Ordering Recommendations"). This is a screening test to help identify fetuses at risk for Down syndrome, trisomy 18, trisomy 13 and Turner syndrome, as well as fetuses affected with the specified microdeletion syndromes listed. This test should not be considered diagnostic. All positive results should be confirmed by amniocentesis or CVS.
