NIPT Guidelines


ISUOG consensus statement on the impact of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) on prenatal ultrasound practice

The emergence of effective cell-free fetal DNA-based techniques to screen for trisomy 21 and other aneuploidies has greatly expanded the range of prenatal tests available over the last few years. Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is rapidly being incorporated into prenatal care, thus changing the traditional approach to prenatal screening and diagnosis. However, although NIPT techniques are highly efficient, their role and performance must be considered alongside and combined with other screening modalities. The role of prenatal ultrasound in particular needs to be reassessed as NIPT becomes more widely available.
