Backed by over 20 years of experience and over one million tests, GeneDx offers an unmatched depth of patient data and variant interpretation in the cardiogenetics field.
Whether you have a patient presenting with a specific cardiac condition or a patient whose clinical picture is more complex, our testing menu provides a range of options to meet your needs. We are experts at helping you identify current genetic testing guidelines for various cardiac indications, the benefits and limitations of the current testing methodologies, and the implications of genetic test results for your patients and their families. Our focus is on high quality, accurate result reporting, supported by internal and published data, to make you feel confident when using our results to influence the management and treatment of your patients.
Utilize our genetic counselors who specialize in cardiac indications to help you identify which patients may benefit from genetic testing. A patient’s personal and family histories, which may include various cardiac conditions, do not always reveal obvious indicators for test selection. We can help you take a diagnosis-focused approach to genetic testing to maximize the benefit to your patients and help answer your pre- and post-test questions. Virtual genetic counseling services are available for your patients so you don’t have to navigate the process alone.
We offer various targeted cardiology panels, supplemented with preselected reflex testing options and custom ordering options to enable both specific and comprehensive testing approaches and reduce testing costs.
At times, the most informative person to test in a family is deceased. Postmortem genetic testing affords an opportunity to help establish the cause of sudden unexplained death, supplement findings on postmortem exam, and determine whether family members may be at risk for a heritable disorder. We work together with healthcare providers and medical examiners/coroners to help navigate the complexities of the postmortem genetic testing process, including discussion of available specimen types and testing strategies.
