Please note that 4DFREEVIEW is a free option and if your baby’s position is not favorable for aesthetics on the day, we cannot offer a free rescan for this reason.
NIPT, on the other hand, directly analyses the cell-free fetal DNA circulating in the pregnant mother's blood to detect the presence (or not) of Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and other common fetal chromosomal conditions (trisomies 18 and 13). Cell-free fetal DNA (cff DNA) comes from the placenta.
