Question Mild Reversibel photopenia in the septum

Hi, I am new here. I am 44 and overweight, never smoked. Have had a lot of brain surgeries for Chiari Malformation/Hydrochepalus. Recently I have had shortness of breath...and so test showed low oxygen saturation upon exherstion. Test of lung were unremarkable...except for a "floppy" trachea that collapse by 50% on exhaling.
Just has a chemical stress test done and am waiting to see a cardiologist on Friday. In the meantime, does anyone know what mild reversible photopenia in the septum in the anterior apical region means Also there is no right ventricular deposition There is no left ventricular dilatation with stress The stress stress was a piece of cake, however the waiting isn't. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Linda
