My abdominal X-ray showed vascular calcification's in the pelvic area. Does that sound serious?

My abdominal X-ray showed vascular calcification's in the pelvic area. Does that sound serious?

Benign or PAD: Vascular calcifications may be benign or malignant. The calcifications may be related to peripheral arterial disease. I would suggest a initial diagnostic lower body arteriography. Sometimes vascular calcifications may be related to benign aging process. As we age, our arteries start to stiffin with fibrin and calcium deposits. This may lead to older onset hypertension and erectile dysfunction. ...Read more

Would MRI without contrast find DVT? I've had back of knee and calf pain. D-dimer and ultrasound came back normal, but veins in feet&leg are bulging.

No..: The best test to reveal a DVT would be the ultrasound of the veins in your legs. The bulging veins in your legs are maybe varicose or spider veins - though you seem young for it. Sometimes, pregnancy can predispose to it however. ...Read more

In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
