  • Making sense of the different options available for first-trimester screening for aneuploidy. Interpreting abnormal reports for non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) and combined first-trimester screening (cFTS), uterine artery dopplers, preeclampsia screening and low dose aspirin, along with cervical length screening
