Sorry i am in Canada not UK but here it is 1 to 2 weeks so a but surprised at your situation. One would assume anything urgent would be prioritized because the tech who ran the test has to review the images for quality, and if they aren't good enough he would have you back in to retest and he should know very good from very bad. Also wasn't your treadmill performance observed by an MD? If you completed that without serious events you should be feeling positive. Sorry you are still waiting. I would be inclined to follow up just to make sure they are proceeding through the system.

Re: myocradial perfusion scan stress and rest test

I will ring next week thanks for your help x Im laughing at my spellingmistakes lol l was tired when l started the thread last night lol x

Re: myocradial perfusion scan stress and rest test

Any results yet? I have seen my MD already and been told I have a reversible blockage issue apprent in both stress and rest. Waiting now for the cardiologist to review the next treatment step. Have been outfitted with nitro spray but I don't seem to need it. I guess it will be angioplasty for me as I am not aware of any other treatment options. I would rather they did something else but worst case is the blockage is inaccessible to angio and i just have to live with it. Better luck with yours!
