Trace amount of Pericardial Effusion
Hello.  Recently I had a CT heart scan to get my calcium score, which came back with 0 total thankfully, however on the addendum of the report they indicated that there was "trace amount of pericardial effusion".  My cardiologist said this was nothing to be concerned about since there is usually some liquid present, but my concern is to why it is even listed on the report if it's normal.  A trace amount sounds small, but if it was normal, it wouldnt be pericardial effusion.  Anyone have insight into this?  What should I do?  I have been experiencing random bouts with chest pain and wondering if this could be causing it.

Thanks
Steve
