Nuchal Translucency Accreditation

Below are simple steps to follow for NT credentialing. Once you become NT accredited you can start submitting samples to Eurofins NTD, LLC.

STEPS TO NT ACCREDITATION

  1. TAKE A COURSE
    Both the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF) and the Nuchal Translucency Quality Review Program (NTQR) offer the didactic course required for NT accreditation for a fee.
  2. SUBMIT IMAGES
    Both the FMF and the NTQR require sonographic images to be submitted for approval. We recommend you host a practical session with 3-4 practice patients (11-13 weeks gestation) per sonographer being trained to obtain images.
  3. GET EQUIPMENT
    Proper equipment is necessary for generating the images for submission. We recommend 1 ultrasound machine per 1-2 sonographers being trained at the practical session.
  4. GET APPROVAL
    Both the FMF and the NTQR require you upload your images for approval. The FMF requires 3 images and the NTQR requires 5 images. Once approved, they will provide you with a certificate for measuring NT.
  5. FAX ACCREDITATION CERTIFICATE
    Once approved, your NT Certificate must be on file at Eurofins NTD, LLC. before submitting patient samples. Please include your Eurofins NTD, LLC. Account # and fax your certificate to 631-425-0864.
  6. SEND SAMPLES
