if double marker and NT scan is showing low risk then i usually prefer my patients triple marker and very rarely quadraple as the cost is high... if both are normal and low risk then leave it dont worry much... Double marker test is done between 10-13 weeks of pregnancy. It assesses the risk of Down’s syndrome, trisomy 18 trisomy 21 in the foetus.
Double marker test is a blood test where Free Beta HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and PAPP-A(Pregnancy Associated Plasma Protein) markers are checked in the blood. This test also checks ultrasound nuchal scan to check for chromosomal abnormalities. Nuchal translucency (NT) is the translucent area at the back of the baby’s neck. This translucency is caused by the fluid and thickness of this area determines whether to go for further analysis or not. This area diminishes after 14 weeks so it should be checked before the completion of 14 weeks.
Triple marker test is done between 14 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Along with ultrasound scan, the triple marker screen test analyzes how likely an unborn baby is to have genetic disorders like Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome, neural tube defects. It also detects multiple infants and an improper timeline. Triple marker test measures the levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), and estriol in placenta. There is the option of quadruple marker test which also analysis the level of inhibin A along with aforementioned 3 substances. These tests are also known as multiple marker tests..
