Nuchal Translucency


The Wright Center for Women’s Health is now one of the Accredited Practitioners who have obtained the certificate of competence in measurement of the nuchal translucency.

A nuchal translucency screening is a specialized routine ultrasound performed between week 11 and week 13 of pregnancy. Fetuses with increased fluid at the base of their necks (the nuchal fold) may have a chromosomal abnormality.

This screening requires a sonogram and maternal blood work performed between 11 and 13 weeks of pregnancy. In addition to the blood work, a measurement of the nuchal fold is taken. These two components give information to detect any chromosomal abnormalities.
