Wall Motion

Posted By sumi on August 06, 1999 at 10:50:32
I'm 36 years old,4ft 11", 172 pounds, female. Have palpitations. I have been diagnosed with mild ischemia on two of the walls. Hypertensive, cholesterol normal.
Echo - normal
Bruce Protocol - negative
stress with imaging - mild ischemia, wall motion normal.
Questions -
1. Is Ischemia always associated with wall motion abnormalities
2. Can a person's wall motion be normal, but have ischemia.
3. Can wall motion be abnormal and not have ischemia
4. What is the relationship between wall motion and ischemia.
5. Is perfusion Technitium imaging as good as stress echo??
Thanks a million for answering questions.
