Heart transplant patients often have scenarios where in the clinical presentation and pathological diagnosis on biopsy are discrepant. We will explore the utility of MMDx® Heart in such patients through a case-based discussion. This webinar will identify the types of scenarios where gene expression profiling is useful for assessing risk of injury or rejection and will discuss the clinical application in follow-up testing.
