During this period, the lesions increased in size, with peripheral extension and central clearing, leading to the present morphology. She is a known patient with coronary artery disease currently on treatment. There is history of exertional dyspnea, which has been related to her cardiologic ailment. She is not a known diabetic and has no other significant medical history.
