What do Stress Cardiolite results mean

Exercised for 4 min 27 secs. Hr 159. Max BP 140/76 METS equal 10.2
Had about 1 mm ST depressions seen in the inferior leads with no chest pain
The rest stress SPECT Cardiolite study demonstrates a large moderate intensity predominantly reversible mid to distal anterior and apical perfusion defect consistent with ischemia.
Interpertation:  There is ischemia involved in the anterior wall and apex.  Symptom negative, positive stress ECG. Normal left ventricular wall motion and ejection fraction rest and post stress.

In plain words it means that under stress, part of your heart muscle does not receive all the blood that it needs.

Why was the test ordered?

Jesus.
