Hello Patricia! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Have they done a CT scan of the vessels?

I had ct done in March 2019 which showed mild calcification . I just wanted to know does it show the calcification on the ultrasound ? All blood flow was Normal and no blockages
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I had a cr scan of heart on Tuesday and that was normal

Thanks for the details

Yes it can pick but the best to pick that up is a CT scan

But ultrasound can miss small calcifications

If the CT scan was normal then you don,t have any calcification

Please do let me know if you have any other question
