Diagnosis and Testing
How do I get tested for Roberts syndrome?
If a diagnosis of Roberts syndrome is suspected, a genetics doctor can order genetic testing. This can confirm a diagnosis. The test looks for changes in a person's genetic instructions. Changes or missing pieces of instructions can cause the body to grow or develop differently than expected.
You can find a genetic counselor in your area by looking at the website of the National Society of Genetic Counselors: http://nsgc.org/p/cm/ld/fid=164
