Chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA), commonly referred to as a chromosomal array, is an advanced genetic test that examines a person's chromosomes in greater detail than traditional chromosome tests. This test can identify small regions of chromosomal imbalances, which might be the cause of developmental delays, intellectual disability, or physical abnormalities.
