Amniocentesis (AMC)

Amniocentesis, or amniotic fluid sampling, is the most common invasive method used for prenatal diagnosis. Guided by ultrasound, about 20 ml of amniotic fluid is collected using a very fine needle at between the 16th and 20th week of pregnancy. Testing amniotic fluid can reveal certain serious congenital disorders (such as Down syndrome).
