First, knowing your mutation has no role in predicting prognosis, the clinical course of your disease, or risk of sudden death. Second, the principal value of genetic testing is in family screening – that is, in identifying family members who may be genetically affected but have a normal echocardiogram (or MRI), and may be at risk for developing the disease.
