Agree, but whoever provides the pictures at this site might want to pay closer attention to the content. As with my answer, they pictured the human stomach instead of the heart :)

In brief: Imaging

Imaging tests are an indirect way of evaluating the various organ systems.
Some tests provide numeric values with an attached range of 'normal values'which are meant to be a guide to be used for the clinician when correlating the test findings with the patients complaints and examination findings. Numbers can be erroneous due to technical factors or irrelevant in a specific patient (eg body size).

In brief: Either or

The question got truncated, but you are right, the ventrical size can either be normal, increased ( dilated) or smaller than average range for the given age/sex.
