Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
NT examination (nuchal translucency) is an examination conducted through ultrasound at 11-14 weeks of gestation, by measuring the accumulation of fluid under the skin in the neck of the back of the fetus. This examination is carried out to detect chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. Chromosomal abnormalities will cause babies born with birth defects, such as down syndrome. NT values are normal, up to a maximum of 3 mm. This check is only an initial detection. Where, if found more than 3 mm, the patient's mother will be asked to do further tests, such as 4-dimensional ultrasound or amniocentesis. So, on the results of your wife's examination, in conditions that need not worry. The function of this examination is to mentally prepare parents mentally if the fetus is detected experiencing down syndrome. In addition, the doctor also checks for other birth defects, such as the heart and others.
Thus hopefully useful.
