Right ventricle hypertrophy

Hi, I am 21 weeks 3 days pregnant. I had genetic sonogram yesterday. Doctor suspects that my baby might have right ventricle hypertrophy . I also had FISH results of my amniocentesis done yesterday and results are normal. There is no missing or extra chromosomes-13,18,21,x or y. I am thinking may be we should do fetal echo to get confirmed answer on the heart condition while we wait for detailed result of my amniotic. Please someone guide me.

Thanks for the query
Right ventricle hyperteophy is not a good thing, it might lead to pul insufficiency, pul hypertension, cor pulmonale. I strongly suggest a fetal echo.
