Nuclear Scan Heart...What was that I saw on the screen?
I am a 58 year old female with a history of mitral valve prolapse serious enough that my cardiologist has me take a beta blocker daily. Recently have had upper arm pain and extreme fatigue, so he ordered a nuclear stress test. When the did the second imaging, I looked at the screen and saw two white blotches, one slightly larger than the other. The technician kept the one image of the two blotches on a lower screen during the entire scan. Another screen showed various pictures, one that looked like a spray of white stars in the sky. Does the presence of anything other than a solid screen mean I have a blockage? My appointment with the doctor isn't for 6 days.
