LEXISCAN MYOVIEW STRESS TEST RESULTS

SPEC evaluation was done using injection of 10.6 mci myoview for rest & 24.3 mci for stress portion of imaging. evaluation of SPEC images shows moderate size moderate intensity reversible defect in the anteroseptal wall extending into parts of apex.  SPEC evidence of anteroseptal ischemia: overall preserved LV systolic funtion.  GATED study shows normal wall motion with calculated ejection fraction of 57%. what does all this mean?

Simply put, there is an area in the muscle between the chambers of your heart that would indicate that under stress does not get enough oxygen presumably due to a blockage. The good news is that it is reversible meaning it goes away with rest so the blockage could well be treated with meds, only your cardiologist can say for sure.

Do you have a follow up with your doctor?
