Why is my nuclear stress test finding abnormal?

I had a nuclear stress test last week as part of a company physical to work overseas. I got a message from the medical facility saying that my stress test was Abnormal and they want to do an ultrasound. I had a angiogram done about 5 years ago and there was no blockage...can you please tell me what all this means

Hi,

Abnormal nuclear stress test means that there could be a possible underlying blockage in the heart.

I can understand that you had done an Angiography 5 years ago which was normal, but 5 yrs is a long time and as the stress test has revealed abnormality you have to get a 2Echo and Angiography done again.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sameer Maheshwari, Cardiologist
