Abstract

BACKGROUND: The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine recently recommended offering genetic counseling and diagnostic testing for enlarged nuchal translucency at ≥3.0 mm, regardless of previous negative screening with noninvasive prenatal testing. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to perform a population-based, individual record linkage study to determine the optimal definition of an enlarged nuchal translucency for the detection of atypical chromosome abnormalities. STUDY DESIGN: This was a retrospective study of women resident in Victoria, Australia, undergoing combined first-trimester screening during the 24-month period from January 201..
