SamenvattingPrenatal diagnosis may result in findings that were not specifically sought. Although providers are more or less familiar with this phenomenon, professional guidelines for dealing with unexpected findings in prenatal diagnosis are lacking. Consequently, individual providers need to decide in each case of an unexpected finding what is the best way to handle the situation. The replacement of this ad hoc approach by a more structural strategy could lead to an improvement in the quality of prenatal diagnosis practice. This thesis searches for the best way to deal with unexpected findings in prenatal diagnosis.
