nuclear stress test
I was told that on my nuclear stress test, the bottom of my heart did not light up, and that this could indicate lack of flow of blood to my heart or it could just be my position, or the camera, etc.  I don't know what to do with this info.  The doctor prescribed medication, but it sounds like he's not even sure that there is a problem.

It is fairly common for this part of the heart to not appear on the images due to position or soft tissue attenuation meaning if you are muscular or heavy, the image may not be clear. I'm guessing your doctor is not too concerned because he may not have seen changes on your EKG that would have indicated a blockage.

What meds did he give you and were there any follow up orders?

Let us know,
