    Hello, My name is Joe and I am new here. I am a 60 year old male Who just got a CT angiogram and it has scared me quite a bit. I am going to post the results here and if anybody has any input I would love to hear it. My score was 126 which is at the low end of the intermediate risk scale. I am adding an attachment of the test results.

    Joe,

    You ought to ask a cardiologist what all this means.  All I can tell you as an emergency quintuple coronary artery bypass surgery survivor is that I would have booked a great vacation for my wife and myself if I would have gotten your report advising lifestyle changes and a statin, instead of my own do not pass Go, do not collect $200, go directly to surgery NOW!

    Sit back quietly, focus on your breath for a few minutes and then locate a good cardiologist who can explain your results to you.

    Best,

    Ira
