OBJECTIVE This study aims to investigate the length and shape of the nasal bones in fetuses with trisomy 21 at 16-24 weeks' gestation. [] Key MethodMETHOD We acquired three-dimensional volumes of the fetal profile from 41 fetuses with trisomy 21. The multiplanar mode was used to measure nasal bone length in the exact midsagittal plane and in parasagittal and oblique views of the fetal face and to examine the nasal bones in the coronal plane.

Spheno‐frontal distance in euploid and trisomy 21 fetuses at 16–24 weeks’ gestation by three‐dimensional ultrasound

A reduction in the growth of the anterior cranial base contributes to the mid-facial hypoplasia observed in fetuses with trisomy 21 and euploid fetuses at 16-24 weeks’ gestation by three-dimensional ultrasound.

Is 3D technique superior to 2D in Down syndrome screening? Evaluation of six second and third trimester fetal profile markers

3D multiplanar correction prior to the measurement of Down syndrome facial markers is superior to subjective judgment of a correct midsagittal plane by 2D technique in second trimester ultrasound investigations.

Comparison of normal ranges of ultrasonographically measured fetal nasal bone length in the second trimester between different ethnic groups shows that distinct ethnic nomograms should be used in a given population rather than an international model.

Is 3D technique superior to 2D in Down syndrome screening? Evaluation of six second and third trimester fetal profile markers

NBL, PT, FP line, PT-NBL ratio and PFSR can be confidently used as DS markers in second trimester ultrasound examinations performed by 2D US.

Utility of fetal facial markers on a second trimester genetic sonogram in screening for Down syndrome in a high-risk Thai population

These facial ultrasound markers were easily identifiable and highly consistent either intra- or inter-operator by using widely-available 2D ultrasound and had 100% negative predictive value for Down syndrome screening in the second trimester.
