Array CGH, prenatal
|Approval req'd?||Yes, if not ordered by Genetics or Neurology faculty or fellows. Requests on inpatients require approval from Cytogenetics/Array staff.|
|Utilization Guidelines||Tests with long turn-around times (ie. Molecular based tests and Microarrays) should only be requested on an inpatient if the result is going to affect the inpatient management.
If the patient will likely be discharged before the result will be available, the test should be requested after discharge. (NOTE: UCSF Medical Center is not reimbursed for inpatient testing).
An exception to the above may be appropriate if there is a possibility the patient will not survive to be discharged and the information is important for diagnosis and/or family decisions/management (ie. recurrence risk).
