Myocardial Stress Test
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
Stress test : This is a chemical stress test. You will be given a medication and then pet scan of your heart will be done to evaluate the blood flow in different parts of the heart. If there is any significant blockage, it will show up as a defect in the images. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Normal stress but abnormal myocardial moderate inferior partial reversible perfusion. What means. How stress test normal and rest abnormal.
Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle (eg, atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary.) The exercise EKG (stress test) can appear normal even if myocardial persuion is not. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read more
Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls its dangerous conclusion of stress test or good ?
Part of study: Wall motion a small part of myocardial perfusion study. Important findings of perfusion are related to ischemia and infarction of myocardial muscle. Spect (tomographic imaging) obrtains images in sagittal, coronal, and transaxial projections during stress and resting phase. 2 phases compared.. Technetium99m and thallium201 are isotopes. Also see cardiac chamber size and cardiac ejection fraction. ...Read more
Diagnosis 2/8 from 11/12 stress test. Fixed inferolateral apical defect, myocardial infarct, 2 month a-fib/electric shock. Do i need a cardiac cath?
Blockage: It means that when your heart needs it, your arteries are incapable of delivering blood evenly and sufficiently to all of the heart muscle. This often means blockages in the heart arteries. Your cardiologist can tell you more. ...Read more
"negative" is good: A "negative" stress test means the absence of what is being tested for--i.e. No signs of flow-limiting blockages in coronary arteries. In other words, the heart muscle is getting plenty of blood flow. It's important to note that a normal stress test does not mean the absence of underlying non-obstructive coronary disease. Detecting this may require other tests, depending on your risk profile. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A stress test is a cardiac test which can include walking on a treadmill and monitoring your heart while you are walking. They can also inject you with a nuclear material and do a more comprehensive scan on your heart to check for blockage. They can also do a chemical stress test which omits the need to ...Read more
