Question
We were asked by the doctor to undergo Maternal Serum Screen test. We have got the results but we would not be able to see the doctor for another week. Could you help us read the results and provide your analysis of them.

Brief Answer:
Normal report

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
I have reviewed the report.
This shows low risk for trisomy 21, trisomy 13 and trisomy 18.
So, it is a normal report and nothing to worry.
This dual marker test analyses the risk for these chromosomal conditions, and if negative , then there are 85-90% chances that these will not be present in the fetus.
It tells the risk based on serum parameters.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Regards
