Do I get the results of the nuchal scan straight away?
Yes, our software system allows us to give you a Downs’ risk based on the nuchal scan immediately after the scan. The results from the blood test are usually available the following day and the clinic will call you with these and discuss any significant findings and if necessary offer further counselling. A written report will be sent out to you. What happens if the test shows that I am at high risk? You will have further counselling. You will be offered an invasive test (CVS or amniocentesis). You may need to have further detailed scans and monitoring of the pregnancy.
