understanding your report

We understand that many times the information that you receive from your Healthcare Provider and medical reports can be full of medical jargon and can be very confusing.

We have developed this page to assist you in understanding the content within your Molecular Pathology report. As always, if you still have questions or concerns you should direct them to your HealthCare Provider.

Potential alteration(s) in the following genes are undergoing confirmation testing...:

If variant(s) in the Workbench have been sent out for Confirmation, and the results have not been returned at the time the Report has been finalized by the pathologist, the gene(s) in which the variant(s) exist will be denoted here. When these variants are returned, the results will be reported in a Confirmation Addendum Report.
