In brief: Arterial blockage.

Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion.
It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary.

In brief: Consultation

A myocardial perfusion study shows blood flow to the heart muscle.
Abnormal results may suggest coronary blockages. You've already had some tests; for personal review of a medical concern, consider a consultation with a doctor here on HealthTap. The "inbox consult" allows you to message back and forth when a lot of information needs to be exchanged (like prior test reports, etc.)
