Hi,

The CT angiography report shows mild blockage in one of the arteries (LAD) with a non-significant disease in other vessels.
The coronary calcium score is also low (11).
So if you have symptoms like chest heaviness on exercise or exertion you will need further testing by invasive angiography otherwise it is fine.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sameer Maheshwari, Cardiologist
