I was told by my cardiologist I had a normal perfusion study. Bu when results were provided to me. They stated the following:
Perfusion Spect Analysis:
Significant Attenuation was noted from soft tissue. No suspicious extra cardiac activity noted. Movement artifacts were insignificant and corrected as needed. Perfusion study in the short, VL, HL axis views is abnormal showing a minimal-sized defect in the septal wall of mild intensity. The defects mostly resolve with rest.
GATED Spect Analysis:
The study is reliable with patients body habitus and heart rhythm. The overall quality of the study is acceptable. Wall motion study using gated SPECT, observed in the short VL and HL axis views showed normal left ventricular contractility in all myocardial segments calculated at 65%. No LV dilation or TID noted No LV hypertrophy noted. Quantitative gated SPECT shows normal LV volumes.
Conclusions: Normal perfusion study, no ischemia or infarction noted No ischemia by ECG criteria.
So my questions to any doctor or other cardiology expert is this really normal due I need a second opinion?
