In brief: Yes
Whether or not an infant has familial adenomatous polyposis can be determined prenatally by chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis.
For couples using in vitro fertilization to become pregnant, embryos can be tested for genetic disorders before transferring them into the uterus. The Children's Hospital of PA website has good info under their Hereditary Cancer Predisposition Program.
