First Trimester Testing: Screen for Chromosomal Abnormalities Early with Leading-Edge Expertise
If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant and you have risk factors for having a baby with chromosomal abnormalities, talk with your obstetrician about genetic testing. You may want to consider a first-trimester screening, one of the most advanced tests available for Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities. At the forefront of prenatal testing for two decades, the High Risk Pregnancy Center in southern Nevada performs your screening and interprets your results with unsurpassed skill and expertise.
Get peace of mind early in your pregnancy with advanced testing.
We conduct the first trimester screening between 11 and 13 weeks. It involves blood tests combined with special ultrasound testing.
If the test indicates an increased risk for a chromosomal abnormality, your High Risk Pregnancy Center specialist may recommend further testing, such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS), amniocentesis, or noninvasive fetal chromosome screening from a simple maternal blood sample, to obtain further information about your pregnancy.
