Question:I m 19 weeks pergnent and my anomaly scan report shows some tiny intra cardiac echogenic focus on the left ventricle of my baby...is any problem??
Answer: Hi! Fetal Echocardiogenic Foci are common findings and are commonly seen inside heart chambers during routine fetal heart scanning, the left ventricle is most frequent location, Although they probably represent a normal variant of papilary muscle development, they should be monitered as a possible risk of congenital heart defect. Good luck!
Question:In ultrasound report mentioned faint intra cardiac echogenic focus seen in the fetal left ventricle means??
Answer: Ecogenic intra cardiac foci are mostly seen in LV only. But sometimes they dissolve by themselves somewhere in between your third trimester. The severity depends on the size and calcification. If there are no chromosomal anomalies detected in your USG then these foci will not affect your baby's health. Hope it helps! Take care.
