Ultrasound is safe, there are no known ill-effects, however, we do keep our scan times within recommended limits.

The risk result will be individually calculated, based on maternal age, how pregnant you are, the nuchal translucency measurement and up to 4 additional ultrasound chromosomal markers.

Because of restrictions in budget and adequate training, the NHS offers only a basic Nuchal measurement and does not assess other features such as the presence / absence of the nasal bone, ductus blood flow, tricuspid regurgitation and fetal heart rate which can significantly affect the risk.

The nuchal scan can only be performed between 11 weeks 2 days and 13 weeks 6 days of pregnancy and is carried out by fetal medicine specialist.

This test also includes the results of a blood test which is taken from the mother to measure the levels of two hormones that are being released directly by the pregnancy (free B-h CG and PAPP-A).

The detection rate in the NHS is between 70 – 90% and will depend upon where you have your scan.
