Moderate perfusion defect

I had a stress test the other day and wanted to find out what the results meant.  under stress Images resulted in a mild to moderate perfusion defect of the inferior wall and inferoseptum extending to the inferoapex superimopsed on a mild resting defect in the same distribution.  Low normal perfusion in anterior and lateral walls.  I have no symptoms of chast pain or shortness of breath and acheived  a rate pressure of 15.1 METS.

If you were able to do 15.1 METS within your recommended heart rate without symptoms, indicates very minor defects of no consequence.
