These are the acronyms for the genetic studies that are performed on an embryo before it is transferred to the uterus. On the one hand, PGD refers to preimplantation genetic diagnosis; while PGT stands for Preimplantation Genetic Test.

Currently, the most commonly used term for this complementary technique is PGT.
