Maybe: It will depend on the certification of the radiologist. You do have to be certified to do this.

Maybe: Nt ultrasounds should be done by any credentialed radiology department but many don't have the certification required. It's combined with a first trimester blood test which helps determine risk factors for anomalies or chromosomal defects. If they don't do them, your doc should know who to refer you to for this test. Good luck.

Yes: This is usually a standard examination in a full radiology department.

Possibly: The nuchal translucency scan requires special training and equipment. Therefore, it may not be available in all institutions. Suggest you call the radiology department at your hospital to see if available.
