Laboratory testing during pregnancy is a key component of fetal/mother health and well-being. Attend this educational webinar to learn more about the laboratory changes associated with testing during normal pregnancy, in addition to commonly performed tests to identify fetal abnormalities.

Learning Objectives:

Explain the structure, function, and isoforms of hCG

Discuss the relationship between maternal hCG concentrations and fetal well-being

Describe tests and their utility for predicting preterm birth and preeclampsia

Identify the origins of amniotic fluid and assess laboratory tests commonly performed on this fluid

Evaluate basic relationships among maternal serum biomarkers that are used to assess a fetus’ risk for an Open Neural Tube Defect (ONTD) and Fetal Aneuploidy
