I took a treadmill stress test and nuclear stress test. I'm seeking help in understanding the results. The report indicated the following:
1. Good cardiac extraction.
2. Small area of very minor inferior reversible defect.
3. No transient ischemic dilatation.
4. Gated SPECT revealed no regional abnormalities.
5. Calculated ejection fraction is 76%.
1. Small area of very mild inferior ischemia.
2. No regional wall abnormalities.
3. Calculated EF 76%.
At first, I though having an EF higher than 70% was a good indicator since good is 50-70%. But I have since read that "An ejection fraction measurement higher than 75 percent may indicate a heart condition such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy."
Thank you in advance for yout advice.
