Is the only test an echo?

They also performed an ECG. That looked normal.
You prob need a cmr ( cardiac MRI) to get exact readings

I guess the bigger question is what is causing the lvh. Usually it is high blood pressure, valve disease, or  if you lift weights that can cause it to. If you find the cause and fix it the lvh should reverse
