Lisa they take into consideration: Age, blood test results, nuchal fold & nasal bone measurements I believe.
My age our ratio should of been 1:1600++++ but with the Nuchal fold alone of 5.9 (nasal bone was present) it bought our results down to 1:2 for T21 & 1:4 for T13 or 18. Jacob had none of these instead he was missing his whole X chromosome.
Its there to give you odd of what might be wrong nothing more as its not a definate answer to get the definates you need the CVS or amnio done.

At age 40 my result for Seth was 1:20. His NT was 3.6. He was negative for DS. Now, at nearly 41, my result for this baby was 1:780. I am thrilled! That's a great result that doesn't concern me at all. If there is nothing on your morph scan to indicate DS, chances are your baby will be perfect. Try to relax - it's a good result. The nuchal thickness was really low. Mine was 2.4 this time.

Be careful about looking for the nasal bone yourself. I did and talked myself into the fact there wasn't one at 12 weeks. I am still scared about this. It is not standard procedure where I'm living to check for the nasal bone. When I asked my docs about it, they said to the untrained eye it can sometimes look as if there is no bone because the u/s equipment needs to be placed in a position to specifically look for the bone. Also, only certain sonographers are trained to look for it. So try not to freak out if you don't see it.....

At age 33, risk of Down's was 1:50.
Had CVS - baby is perfectly fine.
Your nuchal measurement is really good. I wouldn't worry. I wasted a lot of time stressing about it.

I'm 22, so can't really help with your request.
Try to remember though, your results mean you have around a 0.1% chance of DS - 99.9% chance that bub doesn't have downs.
