what is photopenia

Afater a stress image test it is reported that I have a photopenia in the junctional zone of the right coronary and the circufles. There is photopenia i the anteroseptal wall near the apcical portion of the left myocardium also whisch is most conspicuous on the resting images and is an indicator of chest wall attenuation.  I have had further testing, an angiogram and the other doctor said there was no blockage and my heart is fine.  What is photopenia?

I think it refers to a darkened region of an x-ray or other type of scan due to thickness of tissue or fat deposits.
