What is a nuchal scan or nuchal ultrasound?

0

The nuchal scan is an ultrasound scan performed between 11 and 13 weeks of pregnancy, during which the fluid at the back of the baby?s neck (the nuchal translucency) is measured. All babies will have some fluid here, but in babies with Down syndrome the fluid tends to be increased.
