Abstract

We have determined feasibility and levels of agreement for Visualizing thenuchal translucency within a time limit with three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) transvaginal ultrasound. A total of 213 women of median gestational age 13 weeks (range 11-14 weeks) undergoing first-trimester nuchal translucency (NT) thickness measurements with 2D transabdominal ultrasound were included in the study. Additionally all women underwent 2D and 3D transvaginal NT examination within a time limit of 90 s. These two methods were compared with each other and with our standard method (213 transabdominal ultrasound) with respect to visualization of fetal nuchal fold and to the levels of agreement. The nuchal fold was visualized by 3D and 2D transvaginal ultrasound in 85.9% (95%, CI: 80.5%, 90.3%) and 25.8% (95% CI: 20.1%,32.2%), respectively (p<0.001). There was a statistically significant underestimation of the NT by 2D transabdominal as compared With 3D transvaginalultrasound of 0.1 mm (p<0.001), and by 3D transvaginal as compared with 2Dtransvaginal ultrasound of even 0.1 min (p<0.001). 3D transvaginal ultrasound of the nuchal fold has increased feasibility to 2D transvaginal ultrasound within a short examination time and with minimal, but significant, measurement differences.
