i just had an echo stress test that indicated the left ventricle cavity size was decreased, what does that mean?

More info needed: BUT if you are saying at the end of the stress test, "LV cavity size decreased" then that is NORMAL. Augmentation of LV systolic function and decrease LV cavity size is normal with excercise and what is supposed to happen when we need to pump out more blood to our skeletal muscles.
