Abstract

In the Cytogenetics simulation, you begin in an ultrasound examination room where a young mother‐to‐be receives an abnormal ultrasound result. Your task is to use the power of cytogenetics to identify the underlying cause of the result and to inform her about the possible outcomes for her unborn child.
