Abstract

Objective: To examine how women use the nuchal translucency (NT) risk adjustment in decision-making for invasive prenatal diagnosis. Study Design: Retrospective cohort study of 1083 consecutive NT screening exams. A screen-positive test was defined as a risk ≥1/300. Primary outcome was what proportion of screen-positive or screen-negative women chose to undergo chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis. Results: Of the women tested, 79% (858/1083) were ≥35-years-old and 88% (756/858) of these women had a decrease in age-related risk after NT. Of the screen-negative women, 31% (238/756) ≥35 years of age chose to have invasive testing as compared to only 11.2% (25/223) of those
