  • It is a sign of Down's, but it's not always reliable.

  • Like the AFP test (quad or triple screen), scanning a NF is inconclusive. It's supposed to be a sign of Down's Syndrome. My OB doesn't even do these scans anymore because they're so inconclusive and cause unneeded worry for the parents-to-be. I do however recommend you speak thouroughly with your Doc about this, if you haven't already.
