The most commonly used diagnostic methodology for this purpose, ultrasonography, is a non-invasive method, which is safe for the mother and the fetus. Its effectiveness in detecting fetal malformations, however, depends on the operator's experience and the quality of the equipment used and is, in any case, dwindled in special clinical conditions such as oligohydramnios, maternal obesity, or complex fetal anomalies . The main limitation of such diagnostic methodology is the inability to detect birth defects before the second trimester of pregnancy. On the other hand, there are other diagnostic methods, such as chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis, able to identify, as early as the first trimester of pregnancy, a number of defined malformations, such as Trisomies or other forms of cromosomipathies, as well as exposing both the mother and the fetus to a significant risk of serious complications.
