Question: In which week should we get down syndrome test and other chromosomal defect tests. Is it done through blood test
Answer: Hie The nuchal translucency scan (also called the NT scan) uses ultrasound to assess your developing baby's risk of having Down syndrome (DS) and some other chromosomal abnormalities, as well as major congenital heart problems It is performed between 11 and 14 weeks  NT of less than 3.5mm is considered normal when your baby measures between 45mm (1.8in) and 84mm (3.3in).  As the NT increases, so does the chance of Down's syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities. All developing babies have some fluid at the back of their neck. But many babies with Down's syndrome have an increased amount.
