Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The risk as mentioned is high. So the next step would be to get a quadruple marker at 14 to 16 weeks and if positive then amniocentesis for fetal cell karyotyping can be done to get a conclusive result to rule out Down's syndrome. If you prefer non invasive test for the same then you can opt for NIPT test or non invasive prenatal testing.
