Hello,
Atheromatous aorta is a common finding in adults. However the extent of plaques need to be evaluetd for which an angiography should be done. Pneumonitis is a general term that refers to inflammation of lung tissue. It can be due to many causes and your mother should get a CT chest and pulmonary function tests done for which you should consult a physician.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
