• Ersttrimestertest

     

    First trimester screening can tell whether a child will be affected by a chromosome abnormality, most commonly trisomy 21, 13, or 18.

     

    Along with a blood test, measurement of nuchal (nape of the neck) translucency thickness (1) forms an essential part of first trimester screening..

     

    Experience shows a correlation between increased thickness of the nape of the fetal neck and the probability of trisomy 21 (2).
