Question: what is echogenic focus plz help me out becoz maine 19week may level 2 karwaya tha usmay show hua tha echogenic focus in left ventricle
Answer: hello dear Echogenic intracardiac focus (EIF) is a small bright spot seen in the baby's heart on an ultrasound exam. This is thought to represent mineralization, or small deposits of calcium, in the muscle of the heart. EIFs are found in about 3–5% of normal pregnancies and cause no health problems. an echogenic focus is seen in the left ventricle of the heart. This is NOT a heart defect, it does NOT. change the function of the heart, and it does NOT cause heart disease. Usually the bright spot is a small calcium deposit and is a normal finding.
Many times an echogenic focus resolves itself. We had one with my freind daughter and it had disappeared on a follow up scan. it is a marker for chromosomal abnormalities(CA)... meaning that some babies with a CA show the echogenic focus, but not all babies with an echogenic focus have a CA.
My freind daughter had the same and now she is a healthy and happy little girl who will be 5 next week. She has no heart problems and no chromosomal abnormalities. Try not to worry. Just pray and have faith in God. If your doctor said you have nothing to worry about, dont worry at all. Dont stress yourself over it and always speak nothing but positive things about your babies health. Dont consume yourself down with negative thoughts but instead think positive about every aspect of your pregnancy and your baby.
