SPECT MPI Report
There was a small defect of moderate intensity in the mid to apical anterior wall that remained fixed on the rest images and most likely is due to breast attenuation artifact; however a non-transmural myocardial scar cannot be excluded.
PET MPI Report
There were no regional perfusion defects seen on the stress or rest images. The patient’s PET/CT test results are normal and suggest no evidence of flow-limiting CAD. The results suggest that the previously described fixed anterior wall defect (her prior SPECT study) is likely to represent an attenuation artifact.
Note: Cardiac catheterization was not performed because the PET MPI study was normal.
