About the Nuchal Translucency (NT) Scan

A nuchal translucency scan, often called an NT scan, assesses the risk of your baby having any chromosomal abnormalities, and checks that everything is progressing well.

We understand that this can be an anxious time in your pregnancy. Which is why you’ll receive a reassuring and personal service when you book an NT scan at the Baby Scan Clinic on London’s prestigious Harley Street.

What to expect on the day

An NT scan is carried out between the 11th and the 13th week of pregnancy and is designed to help identify the risk of Down’s syndrome in your baby and any other chromosomal abnormalities. This is done by measuring the amount of fluid around the baby's neck.

The scan is carried out abdominally, by one of our experienced and friendly sonographers who will talk you through the process. You will be able to see your baby in real-time on the large screen. Please be aware that this appointment does not include screening tests.

Preparing for your scan

Feel free to eat and drink as normal on the day of your scan and wear loose clothing during your appointment (ideally a skirt or trousers and a top). Please drink a pint of water an hour prior to your scan, and do not empty your bladder before the examination.
