Result of CT Angiogram: LAD 80% stenosis in the proximal segment/70% RCA

Here is the section of the recent results (7/4/2023) that cause me some concern:

LAD: The LAD is a large vessel measuring 3.2 mm proximally. There is moderate calcific and noncalcific plaque in the proximal and mid segments with ~80% stenosis in the proximal segment and ~50% stenosis in the mid segment. There is a large first diagonal branch with mild calcific plaque. The distal segment appears normal.

RCA: The RCA is a large, dominant vessel measuring 4.0 mm in diameter proximally and gives rise to the (R)PDA and (R)PLV branches. There is moderate calcific and noncalcific plaque in the proximal and mid segments with ~70% stenosis in the proximal segment.

What is the typical follow up/recommendations for this result?
