Diagnosis before birth is termed as prenatal diagnosis. Methods for prenatal diagnosis include ultrasound of the uterus, placenta, and/or developing fetus, chorionic villus sampling (CVS) to obtain tissue for chromosome or biochemical analysis, and amniocentesis to obtain amniotic fluid for the analysis of chromosomes, enzymes, or DNA.
