Arteric A1 Segment Means.....

Hey all,

I have an MRA BRAIN report that I am coding and the impression states: ARTERIC LEFT A1 SEGMENT WHICH MAY BE CONGENITAL

Now I have look everywhere and I have NO IDEA what his may be in order for me to code it.  From what I remember from A&P the root word ARTERI means artery and the suffix -IC means pertaining to.  The this then says Pertaining to Artery A1 Segment which may congenital... it absolutely does not make sense to me.

I would appreciate any help!
