The results of a Persantine Stress Test with Radioisotope Perfusion are as follows:
Stress myocardial perfusion results - large area of mild reduction in perfusion of the inferoseptal wall.
Rest myocardial perfusion results - large area of mild reduction in perfusion of the infero-septal wall.
Gated wall motion results - normal LV size and wall thickening.
Comparison of stress - rest myocardial perfusion results - abnormal fixed defect is present in the infero-septal wall.
Impression of myocardial perfusion results - abnormal results with a fixed defect, consistent with an infarct in a large area of the infero-septal wallk.
Does this fixed defect mean scar tissue? Can it be addressed with medication or some other non invasive treatment?
How are you? Are there other symptoms present? This could include atherosclerosis involving major coronary artery and it is best that prior to work out or any strenuous physical activity, it is best that you discuss the results with your cardiologist and to have a clearance. Take care and do keep us posted.
