13-week ultrasound: discover the magic of ultrasound

What is a 13-week ultrasound?
The 13-week scan, also known as the NT (Nuchal Translucency) scan, is a medical ultrasound performed between the 11th and 14th weeks of pregnancy. During this scan, the nuchal translucency measurement is taken to screen for possible genetic abnormalities. In addition to this measurement, the sonographer assesses the basic structures and organs of the fetus, making it an important moment to gain insight into the early development of the baby. The 13-week scan provides screening and is not a definitive diagnosis.
