'Optical Genome Mapping for Assessment of Genomic Aberrations in Acute Myeloid Leukemia: A National Multicenter Evaluation' In this study, we report the performance of OGM in a cohort of 100 AML cases, which were previously characterized by karyotype alone or karyotype and FISH. CMA was performed as an additional test in some cases. Our findings showed that OGM identified all the clinically relevant SVs and CNVs reported by these standard cytogenetic methods (100% concordance). The additional diagnostic yield by OGM will be discussed.
