In brief: Easier ways to tell
While ultrasound can give some hopeful results, you can get a definitive analysis by doing the NIPP.
This test was developed early on to verify paternity, but it uses fetal cells that can be found in mother's blood as early as 8 weeks.These can be used for a full chromosome assessment including Turner syndrome.
