Yes: The ventricles are fluid filled spaces that can change in size over time. I've seen fetuses without ventriculomegaly have it at a follow up scan. I've seen a fetuses with ventriculomegaly have it get smaller or resolve. That's part of why one point in time can't give you a clear prognosis.

Ventriculomegaly can progress to fetal hydrocephaly in 3-5% of cases - monthly sonograms are recommended.
