Question

On a recent radiology report of my chest, PA and lateral it was noted that there is sclerosis of the aortic arch and proximal descending aorta. I have high cholesterol and I am taking pravachol and 1500 mg of niacin. Could this be the start of IHD? Any information would be appreciated. I am going to make an appt with a Doc to discuss.

The only way to answer this question is to request a 2 d doppler or a color 2 or 3 d doppler......it will show exactly how you heart is functioning....

Been There done that.
