Hi-Precision Diagnostics: The Power of Accurate Information

Having access to proper and accurate medical information is important in many ways. As a mom, I take comfort in learning new concepts and/or organizations doing its very best to provide accurate health information with passion, dedication, and integrity. Just like yesterday at Chef Jessie's in Rockwell, I got to know about Hi-Precision Diagnostic's Panorama™ Prenatal Screen.

When I was pregnant with the twins, I actually didn't know I was carrying twins. I was bleeding during that time so my OB Gyne requested that I undergo transvaginal ultrasound. I'm not a fan of transvaginal ultrasound because it's painful and uncomfortable. Unlike transvaginal ultrasound, Panorama is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT), which may be done in a single inoffice visit. As you will not be exposed to any extraneous elements, it is absolutely safe for you and your baby.

The traditional ultrasound also wasn't able to detect the gender of Julia. John and I thought we are having twin boys, so we bought clothes and baby accessories in blue and green. The strollers we bought are blue, too, so Julia is always thought of as a boy. We had to spend more because I had to buy my daughter dresses, shoes, slippers, etcera in pink.

Hi-Precision Diagnostic's Panorama™ Prenatal Screen is a non-invasive DNA screening test, which gives essential genetic information about your baby as early as nine weeks into your pregnancy. By knowing the state of your child’s health and gender as early as possible, you can better prepare for your child’s future. Whether you're a first-time mom of 24 or a mom of four expecting another baby, the Panorama Prenatal Screen is for you. By providing a sample of your blood, you will not only know your baby's gender, you will also find out his likelihood of having a chromosomal condition. Babies born to mothers over 35 years old have a higher chance of having certain chromosomal abnormalities such as Down Syndrome and Angelman Syndrome. However, it is good to note that certain biological conditions affect women of all ages. A screen test can help determine your baby’s risk of being affected with a specific chromosome condition regardless of age, family issues, or medical history.

Some of your baby's DNA actually crosses into your bloodstream during pregnancy. Panorama Prenatal Screen is the only screen test which can distinguish between fetal and maternal DNA, so that Hi-Precision Diagnostics' laboratory specialists can analyze your baby's DNA using your blood. Panorama screens for a broad panel of chromosome conditions, including Chromosomal Abnormalities, Sex Chromosome Abnormalities, and Microdeletions. More importantly, Panaroma is amazingly accurate, with a 100 percent batting average on fetal sex determination and the lowest reported false negative rate for chromosomal conditions.

With Panorama Prenatal Screen, you will be given informative reports which will allow you to decide on your next course of action for the future health and well-being of your baby. Certainly, this is proactive parenting in the best sense!
