Nuchal Translucency/Nasal Bone

The nuchal translucency scan evaluates your baby’s risk of having Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities, as well as major congenital heart problems. This non-invasive test taken during the first trimester uses ultrasound to measure the thickness of the fluid found at the back of your developing baby’s neck. Babies with abnormalities tend to accumulate more fluid at the back of their neck during the first trimester.
