Chronically narrowed pulmonary arterial branches in the right upper lobe

First cardiologist I met and discussed about this issue. He said maybe stent via interventional can help but need MRI with contrast first. My another cat-scan with IV contrast did show that area. I will have second opinion cardiologist at different location, I think he would say same thing. I wonder what do you think of this test result. If it's chronically, it means no cure and interventional is only one way to do it? I assume that they would put stent or balloon to open them up?
