welcome to or nuchal thickness is measurement of skin behind baby's gives evidence to underlying chromosomal diseases.Normal thickness is less than 3mm.An NT measurement of up to 2.0mm is normal at about 11 weeks, and up to about 2.8mm by 13 weeks and 6 days. Since thie is the upper normal you need not worry other than take repeat scan after a month to see.Take care.

Hi, My wife is 38 weeks pregnant. Last week we had our last ultrasound and discovered that our son s ventricles measured 1cm and 1.6cm. Doctors called in Ventricuomegaly. There was no problem like this in the 20th week ultrasound or 28th week ultrasound. Everything was perfect until then. So the specialist suggested a fetal MRI which we got done recently and the result was there was no other structural problems found except the enlarged ventricles. Can you please tell me what the prognosis is for my child. Will he need a shunt inserted as soon as he is born? What are the chances that he has development delays given that until 28 weeks his ventricles were normal
