What is NT scan?
NT scan is usually done during the first trimester scan by measuring the amount of fluid behind baby’s neck. A small amount of fluid is normal (normal less than 2mm) and measuring the amount of fluid can help calculate your baby’s chance of having chromosomal or genetic variant.
- normal amount of fluid means your baby’s chances of a congenital condition are lower
- an increased amount of fluid means theres’s a higher chance that a congenital or genetic condition is present.
Our findings today in our center in a 12weeks pregnancy is the abnormal thickening of NT. Close monitoring the amount of fluid combining with the blood test is advised to improve the accuracy of the screening.
