Myocardial perfusion scan,shows mild & inducible perfusion defect/global hypokinesia

During my medical research volunteering for muscle research at a Clinical Research Registrar abnormality in my heart was found and my participation was stopped.

Thereafter, I was referred me to the Invasive Cardiology Department. I find that I get out of breath quickly, running a short distance of 100m or swimming a length in a 50m pool. I am now an out patient. In 2012 summer, I had a myocardial perfusion scan, showing a mild and inducible perfusion defect in the inferior region with global hypokinesia and an ejection fraction at the lower limits of normal of53%.

My BNP was not elevated at 20. The SpR in Cardiology who examined me on the 8th November 2012, stated that I was euvolemic, auscultation was unremarkable and my BP was 103/70. I had a coronary angiography, which showed that my arteries were not blocked.

I will be having a US Transthoracic echocardiogram this week. I am still not sure whats wrong with my heart, though the Consultant Surgeon mentioned that I may have an enlarged heart and further tests may indicate more, to gain better knowledge of the issue.

Has anyone got any idea, knowledge and or experience in these aspects, that they would like to share? many thanks, as this may alleviate some of my fears.

Lots of big words there. Maybe its best to speak in laymans terms here, as we are'nt doctors.
BTW, how old are you ? Have you been active in the past and are you average weight?
