Abstract: Advances in ultrasound technology over recent times, mean that the once controversial area of aneuploidy detection is becoming a popular topic for sonographers worldwide. Improved resolutions from high end machines mean that very subtle anatomic variants may have a part to play in the detection of chromosomal abnormalities. When combined with laboratory testing and risk assessment tools, early detection of these soft markers can provide a rationale for the diagnosis and management of fetal chromosomal defects.
