Thallium Scan Test Result Interpretation
Cardiac MRI, CTPA, EGC 's, echo's, Chest X-rays, PET scan, blood tests, ECG stress test. All these tests, no diagnosis. Could something been missed?
Yes, but not common: Yes, just about any study can have false positives, however it is not common with a hida scan. Things which can interfere with the study and cause a false positive include, prolonged fasting(more than 24hrs), very poor liver function, non-fasting state (less than 4hrs), prior surgery to remove the gallbladder, pancreatitis, TPN (total parenteral nutrition). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?
Family history?: much of this hinges I feel on your family history. If you have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or siblings with coronary artery disease under the age of 55 then I repeat testing in 5 years, otherwise probably in 10 years. There is no consensus on this: therefore this is my own opinion as interventional cardiologist. ...Read more
Well...: Since you had a cardiac nuclear scan, I assume your doctors were looking for coronary artery disease. You seem to be a smoker, which makes artery disease worse. So smoking is not a good thing for you, and you should try to stop. Having said that, you are probably not in any more immediate risk for heart problem for smoking after the nuclear exam. Long term risks are greater with smoking. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes...: Yes...Nuclear stress tests can have false positive results. There are different types of nuclear stress tests. There is treadmill vs. Pharmacologic and there is spect vs. Pet. There are also many different tracers such as thallium or technetium for spect and ammonia or rubidium for pet. Each type of test has its own possible pitfalls. Artifacts are often the case of false positive. ...Read more

Spect images demonstrate inferior and apical reversibility from my nuclear stress test. Is a cardiac catherization must be done?
Not enough data...: Inferior ; apical reversibility means there is some ischemia in those regions. Without seeing the images it is difficult to tell how much. If there is very mild ischemia, some cardiologists may decide to do medical management (only medicines). If there is any significant amount of ischemia, cardiac catheterization is usually done. Again, it depends on the clinical scenario..Not enough data. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
