Nuclear/Thalium stress

Recently i had Nuclear/Thalium stress test before and after stress study.

Treadmil part had good results meaning false. But Nuclear images showed small ishemic area moderate severity. According to my doctor he said you do not need intervention since area is small second you dont have symptoms and your stress test was fine though i had heart attack last year with PTCA two stents.

Did any of you also had somewhat similar situation and want to know the risk involved in it to live with small ishemic area to you heart.

Re: Nuclear/Thalium stress

Hi,
Doctors won't do anything unless the blockage is 70 ~ 75% or greater.
