The nuchal translucency scan is a test done during the 12-13th week. It is an ultrasound to measure the thickness of the fluid;buildup at the back of the developing baby's neck. If this area is thicker than normal, it can be an early sign of Down syndrome, trisomy 18, or heart problems.

Thnx asha chaudhry!
NT is an ultrasound scan. As explained by others, it's a measurement of NT which is a marker for some abn. However there are other measurements n observations also made in this scan, all for checking babies development n look out fr any abn which might be seen at this stage
