Fetal Health Screening Tests
One of the main concerns during pregnancy is, lack information on the health status of the fetus during the 9-month period of pregnancy, which has been a major effort to minimize these concerns with the help of prenatal care and testing. Screening tests are examples of tests that are performed to check the status of the embryo for chromosomal abnormalities in the first and second trimester of pregnancy. Screening tests show the chance or probability that the fetus has one of several specific illnesses. In fact, this test certainly can not determine the presence or absence of a complication in the baby, but only predicts the risk. If the result of the test is positive, this means that the probability of a defect is higher than others. For this reason, the doctor may perform diagnostic tests for the pregnant woman to ensure the safety of the fetus. In contrast, if the result of the screening test is negative, the probability of a fetal complication is so low that it does not require follow up. However, in this case there is also no assurance or assurance regarding the health of the baby. The advantage of screening tests is that this method is non-invasive and does not entail any risk of abortion and does not harm the fetus.
