ACOG is an organization of medical specialists dedicated to the improvement of women’s health. In March 2017, ACOG released a Committee Opinion regarding carrier screening for genetic conditions. Detailed recommendations are available for specific conditions that are more common in the population. These include spinal muscular atrophy, Tay-Sachs disease, cystic fibrosis, and various hemoglobinopathies. See the full discussion about these diseases here. ACOG also suggests expanded genetic screening for individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage; these conditions are tested on our Comprehensive panel.
