Tests & Treatments

  • Specialists at Rush offer a wide range of DNA testing, including tests for Down syndrome and cystic fibrosis as well as colon cancer and breast cancer.
  • Prenatal tests, which include genetic or DNA testing and ultrasound imaging, can provide valuable insights regarding your health and your baby’s health. Doctors perform some of these tests prior to pregnancy, and others are done during pregnancy.  In some cases, these indicate the need for treatment that could save the life of your unborn child.
