Your stress echo have shown that you have little front of heart muscle, decreased blood supply may be due to vascular disease.
You may have transient ischemic dilatation (TID) have no much significance. But any way, please consult your Cardiologist he will examine and do angiogram then treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.
