Hi,
How are you?  The genetic screening ultrasound during this time is a screening test and not a diagnostic test which gives information if a mother is at risk of carrying a baby with a genetic disorder. A genetic counselor usually gives the risk factor for chromosomal abnormalities based on the test results and may warrant additional testing for making a diagnosis.  The cause is usually die to genetic or acquired issues during the first trimester. It is best that you discuss the results with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and best regards.
