"One of the biggest challenges that PGT (preimplantation genetic testing) has presented to the field of IVF is this phenomenon of mosaic results - these results that neither clearly normal nor clearly abnormal but somewhere in between." - Emily Mounts, MS, CGC

ASRM Today speaks with Emily Mounts who is the Director of Genomic Services and a genetic counselor with ORM Fertility in Oregon, about the recent ASRM Practice Committee Opinion on "Clinical management of mosaic results from preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) of blastocysts".
Emily Mounts is a board-certified genetic counselor at ORM Fertility. She has been practicing in prenatal and reproductive genetics for over 20 years and is the Immediate Past Chair of the ASRM Genetic Counseling Professional Group. She is one of the primary authors of the forthcoming ASRM Committee Opinion publication, Clinical management of mosaic results from preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) of blastocysts.
