Finally a diagnosis

Researchers use the research facilities of the Radboudumc and the Maastricht UMC+. This enables them to utilize the latest technology in the field of genetics, allowing them to diagnose a very complex group of residents. Thanks to focused research is became possible to diagnose about half of the residents that had been extensively examined in the past. Once you know what type of syndrome a person has, you can use the know-how and experience with this syndrome from elsewhere. This makes is easier to handle the disorder and offers peace of mind.

Sharing know-how

The research results are shared with other European centers. Data of all patients with the same genetic deviation are compared to one another, as well as the treatment results. Even in the case of a very rare disorder, the doctor has access to relevant reference material.
