    Nuchal Translucency Scans
    This ultrasound scan is usually performed through the abdomen. It allows the pregnancy to be accurately dated by measuring the length of the fetus. An expected date of delivery can be then calculated. By measurement of the nuchal translucency (fluid thickness behind the fetal neck) and measuring the level of two hormones in your blood an estimate of your risk of Down Syndrome can be calculated. If the risk for Downs Syndrome is greater than 1 in 300, CVS or Amniocentesis should be considered.

    This method of screening for Down Syndrome identifies 90% of Downs' pregnancies.

    The quality of this screening services is externally audited by The Fetal Medicine Foundation
