Antenatal ultrasound showed nuclear translucency. Meaning? - Online Doctor Chats
I am XXXXXXX from India- XXXXXXX software
I have a query regarding my wife's pregnancy
pl go ahead..
She is now 21 weeks and 4 days. She had undergone a scan (Antenatal ultrasound) on her 14 weeks and 4 days . In the findings, nuclear translucency is 2.1 mm
Would like to know if there is any risk on this.
It is called Nuchal translucency
yes right..typo error
It is mainly to see the neurological defects like spine, skull etc
The nuchal translucency average thickness should be 2.18
so your baby's foetal image is within limits
we were worried as we checked with one of the doctor who told us this is not normal
and baby may have abnormalities
Did she review the report at 14 weeks
not sure whats OBGYN..
oh ok. Yes she reviewed and told everything is normal
When we showed the report to another OBGYN today, she told this is not normal
so it was confusing
Do not worry
You can post the same query to a OBGYN expert on your Dashboard 'Ask A Specialist'
and get a better opinion than mine as I am GP and have limited knowledge. But as far as I know this is average normal value
ok fine..no issues. Thanks for your time. Can we check if any of OBGYN available for chat now
OBGYN will answer by email and most answers will get within 2 hours. So you can post it without fail
There is no one to chat now
Ok fine..Thank You
Do you have any other query to answer
Thank you for visiting me
Bye for now
