Ventriculomegaly (enlargement of the fluid filled spaces in the brain called "ventricles") with a measurement in the lateral ventricle of 10 mm or less can be normal if the ventricle does not continue to enlarge.  You doctor will probably schedule follow-up ultrasounds to evaluate the ventricles for any continuing change in size.  If the size of the ventricle stays stable and no other abnormalities are found, your baby is unlikely to have any problems.
