The importance of anatomy scan at the 11-14-week screening

A.C. Com─ânescu, M.C. Com─ânescu


Rezumat: In the last decades, the screening for Down syndrome brought the 11- to 14-week scan to the forefront of modern pregnancy care. Initially just a nuchal scan as part of the combined test, it upgraded to a detailed anatomy scan that should be done always where the ultrasound machine and the expertise allow, as instructed by current guidelines. Though a lot of the anatomy can be assessed at this age, it is still mainly used only for the measurements necessary for the combined tests or for noninvasive prenatal testing, hence a lot of the structural anomalies are missed. Our paper focuses on cases in which the anatomy scan was not performed, and structural and chromosomal anomalies were missed.
Cuvinte cheie: 11-14-week scan, combined test, NIPT.
