first dual marker and then quadruple....these these tests are to see if baby is growing fine....your results seems you are under high risk pregnancy....1:172 is ratio of ur risk.... meet your gynecologist with the report she would check the baby's body growth and suggest u further....Dr. Payal M Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa please guide

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) is the most common karyotypic abnormality in live-born infants (1 per 800 live births) and is a leading cause of mental retardation. Sonographic findings in fetuses with Down syndrome include both structural abnormalities and nonstructural abnormalities or markers.. It has been identified  women at risk of carrying a fetus with trisomy 21, including consideration of maternal age, biochemical markers, amniocentesis, and prenatal ultrasound.. an individual being at high risk for fetal Down syndrome when the risk of aneuploidy is 1/270 or greater, which is the mid-second-trimester prevalence for a 35-year-old woman.. hence, take your doctor opinion...
