Question: Hi... Can u pls tell mee about USG(NT/NB) scan.... When it should be done... In which week or month.... Nd for what it should be done?
Answer: NB stands for nasal bone. ... An overly thick nuchal fold and/or absence of the nasal bone can be markers for Down syndrome. The NT scan is usually performed in conjunction with a blood test taken around the same time. You will get a screening result giving you the odds of your having a baby with a chromosomal disorder.
The NT scan must be done when you're between 11 and 14 weeks pregnant, because this is when the base of your baby's neck is still transparent. (The last day you can have it is the day you turn 13 weeks and 6 days pregnant.) It's usually offered along with a blood test in first-trimester combined screening options.
