Stress test gated images

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test gated images


Avatar m tn I don't know the significance of changing positions, but changing positions did not change the effect any change of stress images. If you were having chest pains, the perfusion defect might be the underlying cause. With more information there could be a better understanding what is going on, but just based on the information provided there appears to be some vessel blockage. Thanks for the question and if you have a followup question(s), you are welcome to respond. Take care.
Avatar f tn there is no appreciable diaphragmatic attenuation. perfusion quantification images showed mild anterior reversible defect. gated images demonstrated preserved ejection fraction at 62%. there was uniform thickening. however left ventricular myocardium appeared to be dialated and enlarged . the tid score of 1.24. any information on this would be greatly appreciated. i dont know how bad this is.
Avatar n tn Abnormal myocardial perfusion study A moderate sized defect of mild intensity is present in the inferior region(s). Resting images reveal reversibility. Gated resting E.F. = 65%; E.D.V. = 75ml. Gated resting wall motion: normal wall motion and normal wall thickening.
Avatar f tn Myocardial perfusion imaging shows normal tracer uptake on the resting images. Stress images show a new small midly revesible defect in teh anterior wall. This appears consistent with a small amount of anterior reversible ischemia. However, shifting soft tissue/breast attenuation cannot be excluded. Gated analysis shows normal systolic function and wall motion with ejection fraction of 66%.
Avatar n tn 1.0 GBg Tc99-m Sestamibe. No cardiac dilation with stress. Perfusion images at peak stress and rest demonstrate a moderate reversible anterior and anteroapical defect. Gated Images Normal LV wall motion at rest with an EF of 58%. Normal LV wall motion 30 minutes post stress with an EF of 52%. Impression Negative stress ECG but abnormal perfusion images demonstrating reversible ischemia in the territory of the LAD . Normal LV function.
Avatar m tn Myocardial images acquired following exercise demonstrate a small sized perfusion defect of mild severity in the inferior region of the left ventricle. The rest images reveal complete reversibility in this region. Stress images also reveal a mild decrease of tracer uptake in the anterior area of the apex. The rest images are unchanged in this region. Cavity dilatation is not present. Systolic myocardial thickening and wall motion at rest are normal on gated imaging.
Avatar n tn 04 Lung /Myocardium count 0.37 Resting Gated EDV 183ml ESV 105 ml SV 78ml LVEF 42% Stress Gated EDV 113ml ESV 124 ml SV 67ml LVEF 35% IMPRESSION: there is a moderately sized area of mild ischemia in the anteroseptal wall and inferior wall. I thank you very much for your help in better understanding the result of my test.
Avatar n tn I went through a Tetrofosmnin Treadmill Stress Test with the conclusion resuling in an abnormal or positive test. The findings are as follows: Spect Images: There is a partially reversible medium sized moderate defect in the inferior wall. Left Ventricular Size: The left Ventricle is mildly dilated Gated Spect Images: The overall left Ventricular systolic function is mildly depressed with an ejection fraction of 43%. There is moderate hypokinesia in the inferior wall. Conclusion: 1.
Avatar n tn They can't agree on why I did so well on the stress test. Q. Can some one do this well on a stress test, ie 13.5 minutes and still have major heart problems? What's next?
Avatar m tn 45 year old male excellent health planning on training for a marathon so I asked my Family Physician if I could have a Stress Test. He felt it was not necessary because I had no risk factors. He then decided to have me undergo a cadriolite stress test (against his advice). My history - 45 year old male - Physical Education teacher...very active - Non-smoker - 1 glass of red wine a day - one 81 mg aspirin/day. Multiple Vitamin and omega 3's - jogging 3-5/week 40minutes for the past 20 years.
Avatar m tn Results of Nuclear Stress Test Analysis of the images demonstrates a small reversible perfusion abnormality in the distal anterolateral wall near the apex. Remaining perfusion is unremarkable. the myocardial thickness is normal and the luminal diammeter is unremarkable. The gated study demonstrates normal wall motion with a normal ejection fraction at greater than 70 percent Impression : Small reversible perfusion abnormality in the distal anterolateral wall suspicious for ischemia.
Avatar f tn Can someone please help me understand my recent Stress test findings: Images show mild intensity small-sized defect, located in the distal anterior and apical wall. Rest images show no change of the defect compared to the stress images. This defect suggests infarction vs. artifact in the wall. Gated SPECT imaging demonstates abnormal septal motion of the distal anterior and apical wall. The left ventricular ejection fraction was calculated to be 56%.
Avatar n tn Stress Perfusion images show anterior defict stillsmall and mild, but more prominent and slightly larger on stress imaging. Gated images.....there are no regional wall motion abnormalities. Normal ejection fraction ranges from 50 to 70%. The calculated LV ejection fraction is 83% Right ventricle does not appear dilated. Right ventricular systolic function appears normal. Other findings: End diastolic volume 37 ml. End systoic volume 6 ml. TID score 0.
Avatar f tn 3 mci for stress portion of imaging. evaluation of SPEC images shows moderate size moderate intensity reversible defect in the anteroseptal wall extending into parts of apex. SPEC evidence of anteroseptal ischemia: overall preserved LV systolic funtion. GATED study shows normal wall motion with calculated ejection fraction of 57%. what does all this mean? I am 64 yr old female, colon cancer survivor of 3 yrs. high blood pressure, & chlestorol.
Avatar n tn She was the 4th person to have the test on this equipment. According to the results stress images reveal a large sized perfusion abnormality of moderate to severe intensity in the lateral and anterolateral walls . Stress images also showed a medium sized perfusion abnormality of mild to moderate intensity in the interoseptal and inferiolateral walls. Grade V stage. Gated SPECT revealed abnormal left ventricular function with an ejection fraction of 36%.
Avatar n tn holter monitors, stress test, cardiolite stress test. Just received cardiolite results - I'd appreciate y/opinion. Nuclear Perusion Scan Report: Following Stress, SPECt images reveal normal perfusion in the entire left ventricle. Rest images show no changes. Polar plots are consistent with these findings. Wall motion study: Gated images reveal normal wall motion and thickening throughout the left ventricle (should I be concerned about this?

Avatar m tn “The post Stress Myoview images show a small to moderate territory of decreased perfusion. This involves the basal and mid inferolateral region and is moderate in severity. The remaining segments are perfused normally. The rest Myoview images show partial improvement in perfusion to this region however non-transmural fixed abnormality remains. Gated wall motion study shows mild basal inferolateral hypokinesis. The ejection fraction is 60%.
1547516 tn?1294110874 Hi, Can you please tell me what these results mean from a Cardiolite Stress Test I had done? (The cardiologist was too busy today to go over them with me). Does it mean I have heart disease? I know the ejection fraction is low. Thank you! "The overall quality of the study is good. There is evidence of abnormal lung activity: Stress and rest SPECT images demonstrate diffuse decrease in myocardial uptake. Gated SPECT imaging reveals abnormal myocardial thickening and wall motion.
369861 tn?1306279286 I'm certainly not a medical professional, but it appears that the stress test determined that the heart is pumping normally. The Ejection Fraction is how efficient the heart is pumping, and 55-70% is normal, according to most standards. There appears to be no blockages in the arteries. For some reason, the left ventricle is slightly enlarged, but without evidence of a heart attack. This is a pretty good report, in my opinion, I'd be thrilled with it.
Avatar n tn The gated SPECT images revealed a normal left ventricular thickness and wall motion with an LVEF of 51%. Conclusion: Stress images revealed a small, mild, and fixed area of decreased tracer uptake in the apical wall, a normal finding. The rest images revealed a fixed area of decreased tracer uptake in the apical wall. The gated SPECT images revealed a normal left ventricular thickness and wall motion with an LVEF of 51%.
Avatar n tn The cardiologist decided to do a nuclear stress test to see how things were going and the results are as follows spect myocardial perfusion scan reveals slightly diminished tracer uptake in the anterir apex and spectum without improvement on the delayed images. The gated ejection fraction is 64% 1. Equivocal or midly abnormal spect myocardial perfusion scan with a persistent anteroapical wall decrease tracer without signs of reversibility.
Avatar n tn Needless to say, I am looking to change cardiologists, which brings me here to ask the following question. They had me do a nuclear stress test and told me it came back fine. Yet when reading it I noticed that my blood pressure actually DROPPED during the test. Here is what it says: The patient exercised onthe treadmill for a total of 6 minutes, reaching stage 2 of the bruce protocol. HR was 72 beats a minute at baseline and increased to 164 bpm at peak, representing 91% of age predicted HR.
Avatar f tn I am 24yrso old female recently had a stress test done (medical clearance for surgery) and I would soo soo greatly appreciate any help understanding what exactly this means: the stress ecg revealed 1 mm horizontal st segment changes in the anterior. And inferior leads which is moderately positive...
Avatar n tn I forgot to mention that my husband lost 25% of his heart before stents, and was on the backside of the heart, which fortunately, does not do as much as the RV or LV. The letter from the dr's office after the nuclear stress test and the MRI they did last week said, "Cardiolite stress test shows an abnormality on the undersurface and side of the heart. Please make an appointment to discuss further treatment". He's already on HCT, Lisinoprol, Almoprodine, Plavix and Gemfebrizol.
Avatar m tn My recent nuclear cardiac stress test shows the following results. What does this mean? Is this something to worry about? • Myocardial perfusion images show a mild inferior and Lateral scar versus artifact. The post stress left ventricle normal in size • Post-stress ejection fraction is 87 %. Global left ventricular systolic function is normal • Exercise capacity 13 METS.
486822 tn?1208804099 At peak exercise the patient waws injected with 29 mCI of Technetium Sestamibi and stress images were obtained. Subsequently, tomographic inaging with gated acquisition was obtained. Findings.: Anteroapical wall - There is a small sized areal of mild intensity defect which was partially reversible. Lateral wall - normal. Septal wall - normal. Inferior wall- normal. Gated Spect imaging showed normal left ventricular size with an ejection fraction of 70 %. 1.
Avatar n tn Dear Janelle, The test your dad had is called a SPECT thallium exercise stress test. This test works by injecting a nuclear 'tracer' that travels through the blood to the heart at rest and then again at peak exercise. The individual then lays under a camera that is able to detect this tracer in the heart both before and after exercise. A picture can be made and this is then interpreted by the doctor.
