Hi, for background, I'm 21, not overweight or anything like that.

Been having chest & left arm pain while exercising for over a year. I've had ECGs, bloods, an echo, and a treadmill stress test all of which have come back as normal.

A couple of weeks ago I had a coronary CT scan, could someone please translate the results of this! My doctor said it looks good but the word that bothers me is the 'significant' bit.


The RCA is dominant. The left main stem arise above the left coronary cusp directly from the aorta. The proximal LAD is of normal calibre. The mid and distal LAD are of small calibre. D1 is normal. Ramus intermedius normal. The AV circumflex is small and rudimentary and continues as the obtuse marginal. The RCA is of normal appearance. Additional cardiac finding: Nil significant. No significant coronary artery disease or lumenal narrowing,

Can I finally stop worrying about heart disease? :/

Absolutely stop worrying. Move on with your young life & put this in your rear view mirror. Above all, trust your dr, he is the expert.
