Re: CALCIUM DEPOSITS in unborn baby's heart
Someone posted a week or two ago and had the same thing on their U/S and Echo. the Echogenic Focus like you said is a calcium or mineral deposit in the heart that generally goes away by the third trimester. It can however be a signal for a chromosomal error, but that is pretty rare. It is good to have a check-up by the geneticist to rule out chromosomal malformations. But for now, and I know this is hard to do as an expecting parent, I would assume the best and that it is just a normal benign echogenic focus and will dissipate over time resolving before birth.
