What is a Nuchal Translucency baby scan for?
This sonographic prenatal screening pregnancy scan is used for measuring risks of conditions such as the Down Syndrome. This is a risk that increases with the aging of the mother. The thickness and amount of fluid within the back of your baby’s neck is measured and examined. Due to the high definition of the nuchal scan, checking for other rare disorders is also possible.
The nuchal scan is also used to check the calculation of your due date and to predict the clarity of future ultrasound scans.
This scan is offered by our clinic on Harley Street, London. Check with us for an appointment.
More about the Nuchal Translucency baby scan
This type of nuchal scan is a prenatal ultrasound scan for identifying risks of chromosomal conditions and to help prevent abnormalities early on. The Nuchal Translucency baby scan at the Baby Clinic in London measures the chances of Down Syndrome and other rare health disorders. The stage of pregnancy at which this baby scan is carried is at 11 – 13 weeks. At this stage, the fluid in the back of the baby’s neck can be analysed and measured accurately. It is difficult to make accurate measurements through this baby scan after the 13th week of pregnancy, as the developing lymphatic system starts absorbing the fluid.
