Not likely: Your doctor is the best one to ask since he or she has all the details. An echogenic intracardiac foci is basically a variation of normal if your genetic blood testing was normal and there are no other abnormalities were seen. There is not enough detail to comment of the kidney.

MFM consult: Maybe a consultation with a maternal fetal medicine specialist can help putting the findings for you into prospective and help you not to worry.
