Ultrasound NT NB SCAN

What is an Ultrasound (USG) NT NB SCAN?

The USG (Ultrasound) Nuchal Translucency (NT) scan is performed between the eleventh and fourteenth weeks of pregnancy. This test evaluates the thickness of the nuchal fold, which is a tissue region at the back of an unborn baby's neck. 

A thicker nuchal fold indicates more fluid at the nape of the neck, increasing the risk of genetic issues in the fetus. 

Why Done? 

Measuring nuchal fold thickness helps predict the risk of Down syndrome and genetic abnormalities in your fetus. The probability of chromosomal abnormalities is determined by the nuchal translucency measurement, your age, and the gestational age of your baby.
