I received my spiral ct of chest; what does it meant that my pulmonary artery is 2.1 cm and the ascending aorta is 3.0 x 2.9 cm in diameter. There is coronary calcification. What else do I need to do, more tests?

Welcome to HealingWell.  I am glad to know you had your CT done but I am going to have to refer you to your Dr. to expalin the results of your scan as we are not Drs. here in the forum.  Be your own best medical advocate and ask your Dr. where you go from here.
I wish you luck and do keep us posted on how you are doing.
