Brief Answer:
Can get it that day

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear thanks for trusting health care magic.
Yes dear you can get your NT scan at 12 weeks and that is rather the best time to get it done.
Double marker test (blood test) is to be done within a week of this ultrasound.
Both these tests are for Down's syndrome screening.
All the best for results.
Regards
Dr Manisha Jain
