ideal time for it

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr XXXXXXX thanks for trusting health care magic.
Yes you can have scan for nuchal thickness as it is ideally done in 9-11 weeks of gestation.
The most important part is the gestation and the observer so choose an experienced radiologist so that there is negligibl margin of error.
