Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) is a form of genetic testing or genetic screening used with in vitro fertilization (IVF). PGT can be used to test embryos for a number of chromosomes and for some genetic disorders.
The PGT procedure allows genetic screening to be performed on early embryos prior to implantation and pregnancy development, thereby decreasing the likelihood of a chromosomal abnormality or sex-linked disorder.
