A bicuspid aortic valve can be diagnosed by echocardiography (ECHO),
the echo is an ultrasound of the heart. There is a possibility that it
may have a premolar, but often do not even need surgery or anything
about it.

A bicuspid aortic valve is the name given to this condition is a
congenital deformity. The normal aortic valve has three cusps in an
attempt to manage the flow of blood through the heart. Whereas
bicuspid heart valve has only two of these three cusps.

In this zoom view of the aoritc valve in parasternal short axis TTE, the aortic valve appears bicuspid, but there is a echo artifact crossing the valve. What do you think?
