What are Vascular Calcifications?

My Small Bowel Series claims: "Normal Findings"

But one thing I noticed on my report is that before I drank the "barium meal", it says "Vascular calcifications are seen in the pelvis."

Does this mean anything?

Re: What are Vascular Calcifications?

They're also called "phleboliths", they're extremely common and mostly benign - although if seen in a major artery they could indicate high cholesterol/atherosclerosis.

Well, I am a 24 year old male, 5'10 150 lbs, and they were seen in my pelvis. The impression did say "normal findings" though, so I guess I shouldn't worry about it, right?

No, nothing to worry about.
