Answer: An echogenic focus in a a fetus's heart is very common Usually it resolves on its own Its basically a small deposit of calcium in the babies heart that is usually reabsorbed by the third trimester. Please correlate your findings with NT scan double marker screen test If its the isolated findings usually its nothing to be worried about Repeat the scan to see the status
