Help me to understand the commit on my stress test.

This is the commit on my stress test results. What might it mean?

There is a large sized moderate intensity reversible perfusion defect of
the basal to apical anterior/anteroseptal wall suggestive of ischemia in
the LAD territory.

Simply put it is an area of the heart that appears to get inadequate blood flow under stress but improves with rest as seen typically in post stress imaging. One possible reason could be ischemia, this is a discussion you should have with your doctor. They should clearly explain the results of your tests in terms that are clear for you.  Good luck.
