Parents will receive full counselling concerning the significance of these risks and the various options for further testing.
  • To diagnose multiple pregnancy. Approximately 2% of natural conceptions and 10% of assisted conceptions result in multiple pregnancy. Ultrasound scanning can determine if both babies are developing normally and if the babies share the same placenta which can lead to problems in the pregnancy. In such cases it would be advisable to monitor the pregnancy more closely.
  • To diagnose certain major fetal abnormalities. Major abnormalities may be visible at this gestation but a 20 week anomaly scan is essential.
  • To diagnose early pregnancy failure. Unfortunately, in 2% of women who attend for a nuchal scan it is found that the fetus has died. So this scan will avoid intrauterine infections because of fetal demise and counselling about causes of this problem and the options for subsequent measures that may be necessary.
