Had heart sonography, saw a deep dark spot. What could that be?

I had a heart sonogram and don t think there were suppose to leave the picture he had measured up for me to see, but what I DID see was a very deep, dark spot about the size of a beebee for lack of a better word! I am to go in for a stress test this week. They have yet to tell me the result of the sonogram and it s making me crazy not knowing what that dark spot was. Could you please ease my nerves?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

ECHOcardiogram (heart sonogram) is highly operator dependent... as oppsed to EKG, which is machine oriented...
It requires training to do! / lot more to interpret!!
If there was anything really serious, the doctor would not have allowed you to go home...
There are several causes, artefact being common..
Forget it and enjoy yourself...
The treating doctor alone can suggest further based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
