What is the SCOLISCORE Test
The SCOLISCORE Test is the first and only genetic test proven to give physicians and parents insight into the possible progression of your child’s Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), thereby reducing the uncertainty of AIS progression, and allowing for a more personalized treatment plan for your child.
The SCOLISCORE Test helps to reduce the uncertainty of AIS progression and provides information to your child’s physician to aid in a personalized treatment plan for your child.
The SCOLISCORE Test is performed by collecting a saliva sample during a physician’s office visit. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.
Within two to three weeks of the laboratory receiving the sample, the SCOLISCORE Test report form will be sent to your child’s physician.
The SCOLISCORE Test assigns a numerical value (between 1 and 200) to the likelihood of curve progression based on your child’s DNA and current Cobb angle.
The physician can then use this information, combined with other clinical factors, to determine a personalized treatment plan for your child.
All patient results are kept confidential and are not distributed by the laboratory to anyone other than the ordering physician.
Is performed by a state-of-the-art laboratory regulated under and by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) of 1988.
