Stress test report

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test report


Avatar f tn Thanks everyone for answering my question on nuclear stress test. I will go forward with it but report did have the word ischemia in it. Will keep everyone informed. Also going thru thryroid condition also right now So I have that going on also.
Avatar n tn This was the findings from a stress test and mycocardial perfusion test that were done. Please explain to me in laymen terms, am I okay? I just wanna make sure. Postress SPECT images demonstrate a small zone of mildly diminished activity in the distal anteroseptal wall. A mild defect persists in the distal anterior wall on the rest examination.
Avatar f tn ok I have had the stress test for abnormal EKG, I passed this test with flying colors but have not yet heard the results. Would this be a good thing?
Avatar m tn thallium stress test Report.. Please Tell me the conclusion of Report ? do I need angiography ? Dipyridamole myoview spect myocardial perfusion study Age / Sex : 65/M Indication: HTN, DM, ? IHD Isotope : 7mCi of Tc-99m Myoview at peak stress 21mCi of Tc-99m Myoview at rest Persantin Infusion Stress: Pharmacological Intervention was performed with injection persantin (Dipyridamole) at a rate of 0.142 mg/kg/min, 07 Mci of Tc-99m Myoview was given I/V. His resting ECG showed 0.
Avatar f tn Had a stress test there is a large sized anterior walldefect extending to the apex and septal wall. There is a samll sized distal anteroapical defecdt extending to the septal wall. Small sized fixed distal anteroapical defect textending to the septal wall consistent wiht myocardial scar. What does all this mean. I an 70 year old female with family heart history.
Avatar n tn I do have trouble managing my weight (200 lbs at 5 ft 6 in) but my blood pressure and cholesterol have always been very good. I discussed this with my doctor again in January and she ordered a cardiac stress test with the echo. I was surprised to find that I failed the test. Conclusions: "Borderline hypokinesis mid & apical lateral segments. Echocardiographic evidence of ischemia. Exercise stress test without ECG evidence of ischemia. Abnormal regional wall motion with stress.
Avatar n tn I've just had a SPECT stress test. The cardiologist report stated that I have apical ischemia. The size is small, the severity is mild and the reversibility is partical. I'm a 51 year old female ~ on the tread mill for 8+ miniutes, at 172 HR (100%). I'll be speaking to my cardiologist. How serious is this? It doesn't sound so bad?? The only other peice is that I've got a heavy feeling on my chest - not always and not painful.
Avatar f tn My stress test was positive and t wave was inverted. Doc said nothing much to worry, sometimes it is false positive. And asked to get a sonography done anytime later nothing urgent.. Sonography overall summary was fine but in valve wise report, in one it said no significant regurgitation, in second, very low regurgitation and in the last one low regurgitation. I did not go too doc to show the report as it looked ok to me. Cholestrol is not in order. Should I worry about heart disease?
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has had a young child, my son is 6 years old, had anyone who has a child this age ever had a stress test done? we were told this is impossible for him, or anyone of this age. they have recorded his HR of 261( fast ventricular tachy) bpm 2 times and as low as 56 and brady tachy.
Avatar n tn What can cause an artificial or a false low ejection rate on a nuclear stress test 33%?
Avatar m tn At REst Pulse was 63 and BP was 118/90. Resting ECG Normal. The patient exercsied for 13 minutes and 31 seconds on treadmill according to Bruce protocol and achieved 16 METS with peak pulse of 176 which is 101% of maximum and BP of 210/85. During exercise there were PAC's but no Ischemic ECG changes or chest symptoms. TOMOGRAPHIC MYOCADIAL PERFUSION REPORT: The stress myocardial perfusion tomograms show mild decrease in the proximal two-thirds of the inferior wall which improves at rest.
Avatar n tn hi i went for stress echocardiogram after i had a heart attack on the report it states at rest the mid apical septum and apical inferior segment are akinetic and the mid anteroseptum apical lateral and apical anterior segments hypokinetic ther was no response to dobutamine in these segments indicating irreversible ischaemia in the akinetic segments please what does this mean many thanks
Avatar f tn My husband is 66 and recently had a SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Study (stress test). It was essentially normal, with the exception of the following: "there is a moderate sized reversible defect of the inferior and apical walls". The left ventricle was normal in size and the ejection fractions were 57% at rest and 63% post stress. The internet resources suggest that such a defect could be indicative of a prior silent heart attack. Is this true?
Avatar f tn No significant EKG changes during vasodilator stress test. 2. Normal post stress resting left ventricular wall motion and ejection fraction of about 77%. 3. Mildly severe fixed defect involving the apical anterior wall, likely breast attenuation. 4. No reversible defects noted to indicate ischemia.
Avatar m tn I recently took a treadmill stress test and nuclear stress test. Basically, the conclusions are that I have: 1) moderate size inferior ischemia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) ECG is positive for ischemia at a good workload. No chest pains, no arrhythmia. I've research the Internet and have reached a tentative first impression, but would appreciate any professional feedback on the above three conclusions. I am being scheduled for a heart catheterization. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I just completed a tread mill stress test and a nuclear stress test. Briefly, the results are: 1) attained 100% target heart rate, no chest pains, no arrhythmia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) Moderate size infereior ischemia 4.) ECG is positive for ischemia at good workload (reached heart rate of 143). I've formed a preliminary impression from my research on the Internet, but I would appreciate professional feedback. I am scheduled for a heart catheterization. Thank you.
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 m tn I am 62 years old. During Stress Test I was stopped at 136 bpm as the Dr. said Target HR is achieved. The MET was 7.7. Is it a reason to worry? What should be ideal MET for a person of my age?
Avatar n tn I am a 60 year old male who just had a ECG and have no idea if the report I just received is good or bad. I belong to a HMO so the cardiologist says my primary Dr. must review the results with me, unfortunately she will not be available for 2 weeks. First I would like to say that I am in excellent physical condition (I hope) and have ran 20+ miles/wk for the last 30 years, at a quick pace.
Avatar m tn I am 61, female, had a stress test & reported diagnosis is "moderate inferior ischemia". What is the explanation (definition) of this diagnosis and what are most common treatment options/choices?
Avatar f tn and in Sept I had an exercise stress test. When I went to have the stress test preformed, the doctor did not place the cuff on correctly. It get slipping and they kept having a problem getting it to work. During the test I felt fine. But the test kept taking the incorrect blood pressure measurements and over halfway through it , they stopped the test.. That was in Sept.
Avatar m tn The blood pressure response to stress was normal. The heart rhythm during stress was sinus tachycardia. There were no arrhythmias. Inferolateral ECG leads with stress demonstrated minimal (12 bpm). Blood pressure returned to baseline within 3 to 5 minutes. SUMMARY: 1. Abnormal exercise stress echocardiogram at an adequate cardiac workload demonstrating a small LAD territory infarct without obvious ischemia. 2. Good exercise tolerance. 3. Blood pressure response to stress was normal. 4.
