Heart question

I had a single-isotope Spect myocardial perfusion study with a wall motion/ejection fraction test and the findings where that I have transmural ischemic lesion involving the lower septal segment.  What does this all mean and what should I do now?  Are there other test that I need to have done to see what exctaly this means or to check it out.  I am really worried about this and would like to know what should I do now?

The lower septum is the wall that separates the right and left heart ventricles.  Ischemic lesion is some vessel blockage of blood to the area noted.  If your ejection fraction is 50 to 70%, that would indicate it is of little medical significance. Are the size of the heart chambers normal?  Have you had a prior heart attack?
