NUCLEAR STRESS TEST RESULTS

CONCLUSIONS OF TEST-  ABNORMAL STUDY DUE TO MARKED HORIZONTAL  ST DEPRESSION IN MULTIPLE LEADS.
NORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY WITHOUT EVIDENCE  OF ISCHEMIA
NORMAL GATED SPECT  WITH NORMAL WALL MOTION AND THICKENING.

WHAT DOES MARKED HORIZONTAL DEPRESSION IN MULTIPLE LEADS MEAN?
MY FAMILY DOCTOR SAID JUST THAT TEST WAS NORMAL.  AND I GOT COPY OF TEST.

This all new to me. But what about the report of nuclear stress test conclusion
abnormal exercise study due to marked horizontal st depression?  reported downsloping under stress?
That happens... I mean you can look for CAD via cardiac cta.

But to be honest EKGs aren't great.  Like pretty inaccurate.  

You can also just do a stress echo.

That will show whether there are definitely ekg changes and will show cardiac function.

Would still check with neuro though the back doesn't seem to be being addressed.
76 % EF. Average? Normal?
76 is actually better than average lol. But in dyastolic dysfunction that # is misleading.  Bc the amount of blood entering the ventricle to begin with is low.
