Doctor insights on:
What is a "fixed photopenia in the anteroseptal segment of the left ventricle" mean? I had a nuclear stress test done.
Echo stress test shows "severe hypokinesis of the mid and distal anteroseptal segments". What is this?
What does this mean? "2mm st segment elevation in leads v1-v4 with reciprocal changes in 2,3,avf consistent with acute anteroseptal mi?"
Perfusion & fixed defects in the mid anteroseptal, inferoseptal, inferoapical , inferior, apical septal segments with new lbbb?Heart attack or artifact?
Old heart attack: This is (if it's real - never trust the computer read on an ekg) a prior heart attack in a specific region of the heart. Essentially the "front middle, " it's usually associated with a prior blockage in an artery called the lad. Discuss with your cardiologist if it's real as you may need medications to decrease future risk of additional heart attacks. ...Read more
Heart Attack: Myocardial infarction is the medical name for a heart attack. Antero-septal refers to a region of the heart. An asmi (antero-septal myocardial infarction) can cause considerable permanent heart damage as this would likely involve a large area of heart muscle. Optimally, treatment such as angioplasty would be performed within a very few hours to minimize long-term consequences. ...Read more
Unhappy heart: The anterior, posterior or inferior all come together at the tip-apex. Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow. Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides. These have anatomical names: anterior posterior septal the anterior-septal is at a junction. Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise( induced) or a chemical. It may require medication and even surgery to eliminate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does anterior angulation of the two lowest cuccygeal segments mean? I'm trying to nave sense of this
Pretty much nothing.: The coccyx is the tailbone. You could have been born this way. Perhaps somewhere along the line you fell and broke the coccyx and resulted in anterior angulation. For your purposes it really doesn't make much difference. ...Read more
Same as other liver: (see: https://www.google.com/#q=segment+V+of+the+liver; a result of development & connections) segments. Remove & excrete to bile or process/convert molecules absorbed from intestines (protecting rest of body cells), store a little sugar as glycogen & convert majority into triglyceride fats, manufacture & secrete albumin & lipoproteins, remove bilirubin byproduct of dead red blood cells, etc.etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See doctor : Hard to comment on this in a meaningful way without knowing whether we are taking about a CT or a plain abdominal X-ray and the reasons it was ordered. Recommend doctor consult preferably with whoever ordered your test ...Read more
Heart strength: During cardiac catheterization, the overall strength of the heart is evaluated. In addition, the strength of individual segments of the left ventricle are also evaluated. In your example, the strength of the basal anteroseptal segment of the left ventricle is reduced. This suggests injury to this segment, possibly due to coronary artery disease. ...Read more
