Aortic valvular calcification
What does marked Aortic valvular calcification mean for Cardiac CTA results? Is it something to worry about? Would this be considered mild calcification?

"Marked" means the opposite of mild.  I would think that the actual significance of this to your life and health depends on the degree to which the calcification impairs the functioning of the valve.  It sounds like you need to have a detailed talk with your doctor.  If I were in your position and did not already have a cardiologist, I would get one.
