  • How predictive are embryos labeled normal?

  • The process of PGS & how to make sure you’re at the right place

  • The alleged benefits of PGS: lower miscarriage, more singletons, better family planning

  • The criticisms of PGS: biopsy risk, accuracy of the test, older vs younger patients, faulty marketing

  • Mosaicism, why it matters and how to prioritize your embryos for transfer

  • Cost analysis by age and Return On Investment
