This study was undertaken to estimate ultrasound measurement of nuchal translucency (NT) thickness in normal fetuses between 11 and 13.6 weeks of gestation.The aim of this study was to establish normative data of nuchal translucency distribution in singleton pregnancies.600 fetuses with known normal outcome were included in this study. The distribution of median values of NT thickness with crown rump length(CRL) in 10 mm intervals and 95 th percentile were calculated with linear regression
