30th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

S03: CLIN: Review of the New CF Diagnosis Consensus Guidelines

Oct 27, 2016 2:00pm ‐ Oct 27, 2016 3:25pm

Standard: $49.99


The diagnosis of CF has evolved over time as more information becomes available about CF genetics, outcomes associated with newborn screening, and new diagnostic techniques are developed. To reflect these changes, in October 2015 the CF Foundation sponsored a consensus conference to revise the diagnostic criteria for CF. The goal of this symposium is to review the key findings and recommendations from the conference.

Educational Objectives:
  • Describe the different categories of CFTR mutations in CFTR2.
  • Describe outcomes in infants with a positive CF newborn screen but inconclusive diagnostic testing.
  • Describe the role of ancillary studies in the diagnosis of CF.
