Imaging Studies

The types of imaging studies performed depend on the clinical manifestations of the patient. For example, a patient with skeletal abnormalities requires further radiologic investigations, such as CT scanning and MRI.


Other Tests

Note the following:

  • Chromosomal karyotype analysis - To investigate for the presence of structural abnormalities

  • Fluorescence in situ hybridization - To detect microdeletions of the CBP gene on band 16p13

  • Mutation analysis of the CBP gene



Note the following:

  • Electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, and examination by a pediatric cardiologist [26]

  • Radiologic investigations for patients with skeletal abnormalities

  • Renal ultrasonography and consideration of a voiding cystourethrogram

  • Hearing evaluation

  • Neurologic evaluation for patients with a seizure disorder
