German term or phrase: Kalksichel im Aortenbogen
This is from the Thoracic X-ray section of a Physician's Letter. The entire phrase is simply "Kalksichel im Aortenbogen". I can find Kalksichel when I search, but cannot figure out the correct English meaning.

agree  MMUlr: I would omit "crescent-shaped" since the shape is already in "arch", my choice: "calcification of the aortic arch" --> http://rad.usuhs.edu/medpix/master.php3?mode=pt_finder&srchs... (find: "aortic arch").

agree  lirka: with MMUlr ( calcium deposits along the aortic arch); and I'd say calcium deposits rather than calcification.
