Need more parameters: Right ventricular size is calculated by taking the timing of measurement (contraction vs. relaxation of the heart), the size of person, & the method of measurement must be taken into consideration. The reason for evaluating the right ventricular size is important also. It's important to discuss implications further with a cardiologist, rather than us give misleading information, without details.
