Pediatric Echocardiogram Findings

My 12-year-old son just had a pediatric echocardiogram with all normal findings and the following statement, "Cannot rule out congenital anomaly of arch sidedness, very small atrioseptal defect or ventriculoseptal defect.  If any of these possibilities are suspected clinically, then full pediatric cardiology evaluation with a complete congenital echocardiogram is indicated."

His doctor heard a very soft heart murmur and we said he was just beginning to run cross country so he was given the script for the ultrasound.  Does the statement above mean that he should get a complete congenital echocardiogram or that he doesn't need one because the possibilities described aren't suspected clinically?
