Calcium Deposit in Fetal Heart

I'm 37 years old and just had a high resolution ultrasound.  The doctor said that our baby has a calcium deposit on his heart.  Says could be a sign of Down Syndrome, but in the same sentence said it's common and pediatricians aren't even concerned about it.  My quad screen came back normal.  Has anyone else experienced this and should I be worried?  Thank you!

I am 33 years old and as of today I am 28weeks along, and on my 20 week ultrasound I was told that my baby has calcium build-up around the heart. The doctor didnt seem too concerned about it and asked if I would like a amnio just to ease my mind but I elected not to because at this point this baby was being born normal or slightly less than normal because after hearing the heartbeat and seeing it on the monitor and knowing it's my first girl out of 4 boys, there was no way I could abort. He gave me another avenue in which to go which was to do another sono on my 30th week too see if there has been further signs of possible downs syndrome. this will occur wed of next week on May 28 and I'll be told then the results. Mind you he gave me 99.9% that the baby will be just fine because also my quad screening was perfect.
