Could be.: There can certainly be discrepancies between different coronary arteries in their calcification. I hope you had some symptoms if you went ahead and had a scan! otherwise it is a good example of finding trouble where there may not have been any!

Maybe: Depends on your calcium score, symptoms and risk factors. See a cardiologist.
