• Amniocentesis


    In amniocentesis a fine needle is inserted into the uterus under ultrasound guidance and a sample of amniotic fluid is taken. The fetal cells floating in the amniotic fluid can be used for genetic analysis. As amniotic fluid consists mostly of fetal urine, the fluid that is removed is rapidly replenished.
