Students of St. Teresa’s Institute of Education were fortunate to hear Dr. Egbert Saldanha, a consulting Obstetrician and Gynaecologist on ‘Ethical concerns in Pre-Natal genetic diagnosis’ on 22nd August, 2019. The session was scheduled from 9.00 am to 11.30m am.
Dr. Saldahna further elaborated on methods and techniques to identify fetal abnormalities, two important tests viz: Invasive and Non-Invasive test to identify fetus disorders. Students were made aware about ‘Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis and Amniocentesis’- the technique used to identify genetic defects in the embryos.
The session was indeed informative and enlightening!
