In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
