My quadruple test is normal. After 23 weeks of gestation, I took an anomaly scan, which shows 3.6 mm nasal bone. Is the nasal bone underdeveloped? What are the chances of Down's syndrome? We do not want to get an amniocentesis test done as it increases the chance of miscarriage. Previously, I had a miscarriage as the fetus did not have a heartbeat. Is there any other way to diagnose Down's syndrome?

The nasal bone length is 3.6 mm and it is not the thickness. Can this alone be indicative of Down's syndrome?
