Anteroseptal Perfusion Defect
Small to med size perfusion defect of mild to modrate intensity involv da antero-septal wall.76% predict HR is +ve for inducible ischemia. treat line?
Hi I had a stress test done where they put the dye in my IV and my paper work says a small mild perfusion defect Of apical aspect of the anteroseptal ?
Perfusion defect: Hi, was the defect reversible or irreversible? The perfusion defect simply means that there is reduced blood flow to a part of the heart muscle, there are couple of possibilities including blockage in the artery feeding that area, an old heart attack or an artifact due to the test not being perfect or the heart muscle at that moment is hibernating due to chronic low blood flow, I suggest that you ...Read more
Perfusion & fixed defects in the mid anteroseptal, inferoseptal, inferoapical , inferior, apical septal segments with new lbbb?Heart attack or artifact?
What does " Post Stress perfusion shows a small partially transmural inferoapical lateral defect" mean?
Perfusion scan: The reporter is suggesting an area of reduced blood flow to a part of your heart;go and see your ordering physician as soon as possible ...Read more
Myocardial perfusion Gated SPECT study is positive for medium size fixed perfusion defect involving the adjacent areas of inferior wall and infero- ?
Myocardial. Medium perfusion defect moderate intensity in basal mid inferior basal inferior partial reversibility. Ef54%. TID .97 abnormal redegenson.
Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle. Most commonly this would be because of atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary artery. The next steps depend on the medical details. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LVEF 41% at stress.reversible ischemia involving apicoanterior, distal anteroseptal..reduced, non reversible perfusion involving the mid basal.means?
VQ Near segmental defect in superior of left lower lobe. greater then75%defect on perfusion, no evidence of defect on ventilation. few tiny subseqment?
What does this mean from a stress test?
Small sized, mildly reduced,
fixed, apical perfusion defect consistent with artifact.
It means that there: was a slight abnormality on the nuclear images of the test which the reader interprets as most likely related to things unassociated with your heart or heart problems such as large breasts. The test was within normal limits. It would be like taking your temperature and getting 98.7 rather than 98.6. Not exactly normal but also not indicative of a problem to be concerned about. ...Read more
