Fetal Autopsy

  • Fetal autopsy aids USG in reaching a final diagnosis in babies with structural abnormalities.
  • An accurate diagnosis helps in predicting the recurrence risk for each couple
  • Fetal autopsy is carried out by fetal medicine specialists with special training in fetal autopsy.

First Trimester Screening

  • All the consultants performing the NT scan are accredited with Foetal Medicine Foundation, UK
  • Every pregnancy either normal/assisted carries a risk of anueploidies. A 12th week scan which measures the NT and combines it with maternal serum BHCG & PAPP-A is used to determine the risk of each individual woman. An increased risk would require INVASIVE TESTING
  • A unique feature of the first trimester scan is that it allows us to pick up major structural anomalies at the earliest.

Targeted USG

  • A sophisticated high end USG machine with state of the art 3D & 4D capabilities is used to detect congenital abnormalities in the foetus.
  • This scan is usually done at 18 to 22 weeks and has a high sensitivity to pick up malformations.

Growth Scan

  • After ensuring that the foetus is both structurally and genetically normal, the next important step is to ascertain adequate growth and development of the foetus. This is achieved through serial Doppler assessment which scrutinises well being of the foetus.

Foetal Echo

A highly specialized evaluation of the foetal heart is done at 20-22 wks gestation.
