Reversible Ischemia

I need help understanding the results from my perfusion stress scan. What is meant by "There is a small focus of reversible ischemia in the inferior septal region of the left ventricle near the base of the heart."? Any input will be appreciated

It sounds to me like they suspect a blockage. Since it’s reversible it isn’t considered old damage and only shows blockage during stress part of exam. Mine showed a small interior blockage but when I had the Angie Graham it showed wide-open arteries so who knows.

I’m sorry I was doing talk to text mine showed anterior blockage but wide-open arteries during the angiogram. I didn’t want you to think I was an idiot who couldn’t spell
