The accuracy of screening tests for fetal aneuploidy such as noninvasive prenatal testing based on cell-free DNA (cfDNA) techniques has improved remarkably over the past 40 years, thereby decreasing the likelihood of false-positive detection rates. Diagnostic tests such as early amniocentesis (EA) and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) have been recommended following positive first-trimester screening tests for confirmation.
