  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    A bright echogenic focus, usually in the left ventricle can be due to a reflection of the papillary muscle or chordae tendinae. It can be seen in 20-22% of patients and mostly its a normal finding in these patients. The more frequent location in the left ventricle is thought to be due to the larger size of the left ventricular papillary muscle .

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
