Other ancillary techniques, including conventional cytogenetics (karyotype), DNA ploidy analysis (flow cytometry, image analysis), and fluorescence in situ hybridization, have the limitation of not being able to establish maternal/parental contributions of chromosome complements and cannot absolutely determine the true diagnosis.
