Nuclear stress test results

I had a nuclear stress test a few weeks ago and I was told that I was at 78%.  Does anyone know what this means?  I do not see my cardiologist again until May 11, and at this point I am so fustrated with him that I do not even want to talk to him about anything.  Any explaination would be appreciated.

A nuke stress test estimates total blood flow to certain parts of your heart by being able to tell blood perfusion into the muscle.  The test cannot directly observe what is going on with arteries.  The test can tell how much blood is getting into the muscle.  By measuring that the test can make an estimate of how well arteries are flowing.  If a perfusion problem is noted a follow-up angiogram is ordered, to avoid malpractice, usually immediately.  Bad news travels fast in medical testing.
