Abstract

In 2016, the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics updated their practice guidelines on the provision of non-invasive prenatal genomic screening using cell-free DNA. This article lays out the changes to the guidelines and their implications for clinical practice. Impact Statement What is already known on this subject.cfDNA is being translated into prenatal clinical practice at a rapid pace. Various professional societies have attempted to provide ongoing guidance for this translation. What the results of this study add.The latest recommendations from the American College of Medical Genetics offer the most recent practice guidelines for how to implement cfDNA in clinical practice. What the implications are of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research.This summary offers concise suggestions for practitioners on implementing the new guidelines.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 April 2017.
All research outputs
#4,133,557
of 9,662,012 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
#250
of 673 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#96,086
of 261,478 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
#2
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,662,012 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 56th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 673 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 261,478 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
