Patients in the highest risk group (greater than 1:30 risk in this study) undergo CVS, those in the lowest risk group (less than 1:1,500 risk) receive no further testing, and those in the borderline risk group (between 1:30 and 1:1,500 risk) undergo quad screening (serum alpha feto-protein, hCG, unconjugated estriol, and inhibin A) in the second trimester and receive a final risk assessment based on all the measures, with a risk cutoff for further testing of 1:270, Dr.
