Professional Practice Guidelines

A number of medical specialty societies and expert groups have issued guidelines on hereditary cancer testing.  Myriad has formed its assessment criteria based on the following medical society guidelines.  A healthcare specialist may use assessment criteria based on that specialist’s medical society guidelines, or based on his/her own professional judgment, which may differ from Myriad’s assessment guidelines.
