Dr. Lawrence Grunfeld, a fertility doctor at RMA of New York, discusses the difference between Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS). PGD is a technique that allows embryologists to analyze a single embryo for genetic conditions. PGS is used when a woman experiences recurrent miscarriage or failed IVF cycles as they may be the result of an aneuploid embryo with an abnormal number of chromosomes.
