Aortic calcification - Definition


Definition


The aorta is the main artery of the body which distributes blood, which is oxygenated in the lungs, to the different organs. People can be prone to calcification of the aorta in the lining, but particularly in the aortic arch, the thoracic aorta, and the abdominal aorta. This aortic calcification is often discovered during a chest X-ray performed for other reasons because calcium is radiopaque (visible in X-rays). The consequences of aortic calcification may include a slowing of blood circulation, but are generally responsible for few clinical signs.
