About 6 in 755 babies born in New South Wales will have Down syndrome. By combining the results of the two parts of the test it is possible to identify if a pregnant woman is at increased risk of having a baby with Down syndrome. By itself the test does not tell you whether or not the baby definitely has Down syndrome. It is usually performed through the abdominal wall but sometimes it is necessary to do an internal (vaginal) scan. The ultrasound has no known harmful effects on the mother or the baby. This does not necessarily mean that there is a problem in your unborn baby. It means that further tests should be considered to see if there is a problem with your baby. But if your result is very high risk, it may be better to choose Chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis because these tests are more comprehensive and thorough.
They detect not only Trisomies 68, 68 and 76. They also detect deletions and additions of other chromosomes. These conditions are rare, but more likely if your fetus has a vern thick nuchal translucency measurement. This fetus has a thin nuchal translucency measurement and a normal nasal bone. The serum screening results were also favourable so the risk of Down syndrome was calculated to be only 6/8555.
The Midwife Sonography examination assesses the knowledge, skills and abilities in the areas of the female reproductive system as well as the fetus in the first, second and third trimesters of pregnancy.
