Choose Confidence with the 1st Trimester NT Scan

At Balaji Horizon, we prioritize your well-being and your baby’s health. The 1st Trimester NT Scan offers essential insights for a healthy pregnancy journey. The NT Scan is recommended for all pregnant women, providing early insights into your baby’s development. However, for women carrying twins, the accuracy of the results may be diminished, as it is typically more accurate for single pregnancies. The First Trimester Nuchal Translucency (NT) Scan is a non-invasive ultrasound examination conducted once between the 11th and 13th week of pregnancy.

 

It is safe and the optional test that plays a crucial role in assessing your baby’s risk for certain birth defects, including Down syndrome, Edward’s syndrome (trisomy 18), trisomy 13, chromosomal abnormalities, and heart problems. However, it’s important to note that the NT Scan does not provide a definitive diagnosis. Many women with abnormal results go on to have healthy pregnancies.

Why do you need the 1st Trimester NT Scan?

The Nuchal Scan, an essential component of early pregnancy assessment, serves a range of critical purposes that provide crucial insights for both expectant mothers and us as their doctors. Let’s delve into the essential aims of the Nuchal Scan:

1
Accurate Pregnancy Dating:
  • Especially pertinent for women with irregular menstrual cycles, recent cessation of birth control, or breastfeeding.
  • Fetal size measurement aids in the precise calculation of the expected due date.
  • Offers a clear timeline for pregnancy planning and preparation.
2
Detecting Multiple Pregnancy
  • Identifies the presence of multiple embryos undergoing development.
  • Assesses the well-being of each embryo and evaluates if they share a placenta.
  • Recognition of shared placenta is important, as it can lead to potential complications.
3
Diagnosing Major Fetal Abnormalities
  • Enables the identification of significant abnormalities in fetal development.
  • While some major abnormalities may be visible during this period, a comprehensive 20-week anomaly scan is still recommended.
4
Diagnosing Early Miscarriage:
  • In unfortunate instances (2%), reveals fetal demise that may have occurred weeks before detection.
  • Couples are provided with counseling and a range of options for further actions and interventions
5
Assessing Chromosomal Conditions
  • Calculates an individualized likelihood of Down's Syndrome, Edwards' syndrome, and Patau's syndrome.
  • Factors considered include the mother's age, fetal heart rate, hormone levels in the mother's blood, and nuchal translucency thickness, among others.
  • Our scan boasts a remarkable 95% sensitivity for detecting Down syndrome, surpassing the standard NHS scan.
  • Extensive counseling is provided to explain these probabilities and present further investigation options.
