Abstract

A prospective study of 63 singleton pregnancies between 11 + 0 and 13 + 6 weeks gestation underwent semi-automatic nuchal translucency (NT) measurement and were compared with two-dimensional ultrasonography (2D US). Inter-observer variation and the repeatability were evaluated. Sono T automatically achieves mid-sagittal plane views and measures the maximum NT thickness. Measurements have less inter-observer variation (CI = -0.13, -0.04) when compared with 2D measurements (CI = -0.45, 0.28). It is reproducible and comparable to conventional 2D US technique for NT measurement. However, incorporating Sono T into routine practice requires further program refinements in order to reduce erroneous NT measurements.
