We wanted to know what it could be as we have been sent to a specialist. We are a bit worried about it. Can anyone help????? Let us know What does mean by the echogenic band around the left fetal globe?
@rufino Hi, An echogenic intracardiac focus (or EIF) is a small bright spot seen on a developing baby's heart during an ultrasound. The cause of EIF is unknown, but the condition is generally harmless. EIF is considered a normal pregnancy variation, but prenatal screening tests may be desirable to test for any abnormalities. EIF) is almost never something to worry about. It shows up as a bright spot on the heart in imaging, and it's thought to be a microcalcification on the heart muscle. EIF occurs in as many as 5 percent of all pregnancies. Thanks!
