In brief: Ischemia means

Decreased blood flow.
I'm not sure if u are referring to the inferior basal part of the heart or the basal ganglia in the brain. Wherever it is, it suggests impaired blood flow and circulation related to high blood pressure, aging, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking.Follow up with your dr. Take care!

In brief: Lack of blood

Flow to the basal bottom part of heart muscle during stress & usually amenable to medical therapy.
Also may be artifactual on nuclear stress test due to diaphragmatic attenuation.
