Stress echo result help

I had a stress echo test and the folling is the findings, Exam indication: Abnormal resting ECG / CXR
- The exercise stress echo was negative for ischemia at 101 % of MPHR (9.7 METS).
- The left ventricle is normal in size. Left ventricular systolic function is
hyperdynamic. EF = 69 ± 5% (2D biplane)
- The right ventricle is normal in size. Right ventricular systolic function is
normal.
- The left atrial cavity is mildly dilated.

Help what does it all mean???

Based upon the findings you have described, this appears to be a normal (negative) test.

In layman's terms, it was a good quality study, which showed that both the left and right ventricles are pumping well, and that there was no evidence to suggest any ischemia (i.e. no evidence of significant coronary artery disease).

However, every test needs to be taken in the context of the individual patient. You should follow-up with the physician who ordered this test, as they will know how to interpret this in the context of your personal medical history.
