As you mentioned in your answer with the limited information you were not able to reveal much details on the severity of the TOF.
I underwent FETAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY - COLOR DOPPLER scan which shows 28-29 WEEKS fetal maturity.
The following are the details observed on the report:
The CARDIAC SITUS is normal.
The ATRIO-VENTRICULAR & VENTRICULO-ARTERIAL concordance noted.
There is evidence of over riding of the Aorta over the I.V.S with a mild pulmonary stenosis - FORWARD FLOW NOTED.
AORTIC ROOT DIAMETER - 8.3mm
R.V.O.T - Diameter - 4.0mm
INTER VENTRICULAR SEPTUM - 3.5mm perimembranous V.S.D noted.
The INTER ATRIAL SEPTUM shows a foramen ovale with normal flow across.
The CHAMBER SIZES are within normal limits.
Fetal Heart Rate - 152/Min 1:1 Conduction noted.
The MITRAL& TRICUSPID VALVES are normal.
The AORTA - ARCH & DESCENDING - are normal with normal flows.
