So just had my CT Scan for Calcium score, here are the results, I have a follow up appt with my cardiologist next week but the soft tissue part is freaking me out.. What does that mean? I'm 31 years old, history of heart disease in my family so I wanted to get this test done; I feel good about the 0 calcium score but what the heck are these other findings?
