Nuclear stress test result

I just received my result but doctor said everything was fine so my question is this.. on the report it said "cardiac spect scans revealed a small apical fixed defect ef 84%" does anybody know what that means? It just doesn't sound good to me.

These tests give an interpretation based on algorithms, the doctor makes the final judgement based on the totality of the information in the report. If it makes you feel better you can ask your doctor but they make their own determination. If they felt there was an issue you would have been informed.
