Explanation: If your trisomy 21 risk is high than ask your doctor, what was NT means in which range.
Your age is 27 so it's the lower risk for trisomy.
Means cumulation of your age related risk, your NT level and triple marker give you calculated risk.
Now come to your case :As you mentioned your triple marker s/o trisomy 21 risk is 1:98 you must confirm it by Amniocentesis or cordocentesis.
This procedures are carried out only in fetal medicine centers.
