Question:I am 12 week pregnant. When should one go for NT/NB scan ? Is it an important scan ? I got to know about it from a friend. My doctor did not asked me for this scan.
Answer: A nuchal scan or nuchal translucency (NT)scan/procedure and Nasal Bone(NB) scan is very first scan to detect cardiovascular abnormalities in a fetus. they also look for the thickness of the nuchal fold and whether the baby has a nasal bone yet. An overly thick nuchal fold and/or absence of the nasal bone can be markers for Down syndrome. If any issue found in the report then doctor will ask for another level scans like Double marker tests. It is better to get it done. You can talk to your doctor about it and get it done.
