Tests

How is Treacher Collins syndrome diagnosed?

Your child's doctor can usually diagnose Treacher Collins syndrome at birth by assessing the signs and symptoms of your baby.

Diagnostic tests that may be performed to confirm the diagnosis include:

  • X-ray - A diagnostic test that uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film.
  • Computerized tomography scan (also called a CT or CAT scan) — A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat and organs. CT scans are more detailed than general x-rays.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
