1 Answers
Answer: Dual marker test is not a diagnostic test to be positive or negative it is a screening test it will tell you your risk category for the baby's abnormality if your risk is low you need not worry . So each age group will have a cut off . So for that age if the risk is above the range then you will have a positive screening test.
