Does a normal CT Calcium Score Scan eliminate possibility of Atherosclerosis plaque build up in arteries?
Not entirely: Usually, a calcium score >100 indicates that calcium deposits are present & that coronary heart disease/obstruction is likely present. Scores between 0 & 100 are considered normal, but this may just indicate a very small amount of calcium that hasn't progressed to disease yet. At your age, follow heart disease prevention--non-smoking, healthy eating/exercise, not calcium score. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Chest X-ray revealed "the aorta is unfolded and demonstrates atherosclerotic wall calcifications. The width of the cardiac contour is normal." ?
Section studied shows cystic spaced, the wall comprising of fibro collagenous tissue. The spaces show focal lining by multilayered oval to round cells?
Probably: Atheroscleortic plaque can be decreased by diet, medication and exercise. Case studies show that even in patients with coronary artery disease who have had bypass, dietary changes can play a significant role in preventing further worsening of arterial changes and may reverse pre-existing disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11832674 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Moderate plaque bilaterally with shadowing. In light of the limitations related to shadowing plaque, consider further evaluation with followup CT angi?
Carotid doppler: Your carotid arteries were heavily enough calcified that the calcifications were blocking the ultrasound beam enough that the degree of carotid stenosis cannot be evaluated, thus the suggestion for ct angio. Heavy calcification may also effect the ct angio too. Mra (magnetic resonance angiography) would be another consideration which would not be effected by the calcium. ...Read more

Can a CT CHEST W/CST. + 3D visualize the coronary arteries well? The connections of the coronary arteries?
Yes: The test is excellent for ruling out significant coronary disease. It's not so good for determining the severity of coronary disease in people with known disease or who have stents since the x-ray can't penetrate calcified deposits or metal well enough. But in healthy (non-calcified) vessels, it's very accurate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Presacral granuloma with peripheral calcification within the midline subcutaneous tissues. on butt. says not related to palpable finding. I'm Confused
Incidental finding: On the MRI, they did not some soft tissue lesions with calcification in your subcutaneous tissues in the midline. When they get an MRI for a superficial lesion they will often put a marker there to identify the area in question. So presumably these lesions were not in the area of the palpable "mass" being evaluated. I would discuss with your doctor and go through your MRI with him or her. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
