In brief: Doesnt make sense

This sounds like a nuclear stress test.
The term "irreversible" and "ischemia" never belong together for this test. An irreversible defect is a scar from prior heart attack. Hibernating heart tissue (which may become normalized if blood flow is restored), or an false finding/artifact. A "reversible" defect indicates ischemia. This is confirmed by an angiogram. Treat by stenting or bypass surgery.

In brief: See below

This suggests that there is a blockage in one of the arteries in your heart.
Frequently the next step is a cardiac cath to further evaluate this. Discuss with your doctor and see a cardiologist for further recommendations.
