Genetic Testing TechnologyAbout This Course

Genetic testing technologies vary widely in the type of variant detected and the scope of analysis. Cost-effective testing relies on the provider’s ability to select the right test for the clinical question. Whether or not you are the ordering clinician, you may ultimately be providing guidance based on the results of testing. In this lesson, we will practice weighing the benefits, risks, and limitations of different tests within specific patient contexts.
