Brief Answer:
Level II ultrasound scan is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached report. The ultrasound scan report is normal but you need to have a level II scan to confirm the absence of any congenital anomaly.

If the triple marker test and the level II scan comes normal then you can continue with the pregnancy.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Praveen-Tayal
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Level II scan is different.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Level II ultrasound scan is different from TIFFA scan. You need to get the level II scan done separately.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Brief Answer:
Birth defects can be there.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I've checked the report...

The risk of trisomy 21 is 1 in 809. This is not a very high risk. But you need to have a level II scan to rule out any malformations.

Toxoplasmosis infection can cause newborns to have eye infections, an enlarged liver and spleen, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), and pneumonia. There's a high risk of mortality (can be within a few days of birth). Those who survive can have intellectual disabilities, severely impaired eyesight, cerebral palsy, seizures and other problems.

It is best to consider termination of pregnancy after discussing with your gynaecologist.

Regards.
