Not visualized?: Sometimes they don't get all the angles/views that they need. I would make sure you follow up with your doctor.

Most likely normal : The report should have commented on pulmonic valve as a standard practice. Sometimes pulmonic valve cannot be seen, but usually it is mentioned in the report. It is highly unlikely to have abnormal pulmonic valve and no comment made. Most cases pulmonic valves are normal. I check with your physician first, but would not loose sleep over it.
