  • A.

    Some of the mental disabilities or birth defects can be detected with the assistance of ultrasound monitoring, blood tests, genetic testing, and invasive tests. Birth defects like Spina Bifida, or chromosomal abnormalities can be determined with the help of the Triple Screen blood test. Down's Syndrome which is the most common form of mental retardation, can be determined through this test.
