Various genetic and prenatal tests are performed nowadays to determine the sex of an developing embryo as well presence and detection of any kind of mutations, so that it can be rectified at the embryonic stage itself, and to give birth to a healthy baby. (Noha Lotfy Ibrahim- Practical Genetics)
Prenatal tests which may be performed to the fetus may include ultrasound, chorionic villus sampling (CVS), aminocentesis and maternal serum Î±-fetoprotein. Screening for chromosomal abnormalities using the fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) is a challenge. This technique is highly performed in interpretation for birth defects and mental retardation, microdeletion/microduplication syndromes and chromosome enumeration and ploidy states. These tests will provide information to decide whether to continue the pregnancy if fetal impairment is detected."
