Hi,
It is an actual measurement, using a logoriithm, they can get a good measurement from the pictures taken.  You probably have a murmur, slight regurgation back into the left ventricle, also,. The conditions range from, mild, modertate, to severe. Measurements above l.2 cm are not to be concerned about unless there are other symptons, fainting, breathlessness,fatiuge etc.
