If the "CT of the neck" stated "mild atherosclerotic disease", it is a reference to calcium deposits in the carotid arteries, which is a common finding even as early as childhood. If there is associated dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath on exertion, see a cardiologist for consulting opinion.
