Novel Measurement of Nuchal Translucency, 5D NT

Nuchal Translucency (NT) measurement at 11-13+6 weeks scan with maternal age is a highly sensitive means of screening for trisomy for earlier diagnosis of fetal aneuploidy.2-3 In order to reduce variability and maximize reliability of NT measurements, the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF) has provided technical guidelines.4 Furthermore, Herman et al. developed a novel method of image-scoring for NT measurement for the purposes of training and audit – called Herman score – which is calculated based on criteria such as section, caliper placement, skin line, image size, amnion and head position.1 However, of the standards for measuring NT, delineation of a good fetal sagittal section, proper placement of caliper and measurement at the maximum distance of NT are difficult to perform without proper training and thus often operator-dependent.5 This situation led to the development of a new measurement technology, 5D NT.
