Who May Participate?
We invite laboratories who currently perform first trimester risk assessment for fetal aneuploidy to join our program. First trimester screening for aneuploidies includes a Nuchal Translucency scan plus a first trimester serum sample to measure PAPP-A and either intact or free beta hCG.
What Is the Lab's Role in the Program?
Each participating laboratory plays a crucial role in the monitoring process by providing sonographer-specific NT measurement data to NTQR. These data are used for on-going epidemiologic monitoring to ensure that the NT measurements submitted by providers to laboratories are accurate.
