Medical Specialty:
Cardiovascular / Pulmonary

Sample Name: Stress Test Thallium


Description: Thallium stress test for chest pain.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


INDICATIONS: Chest pain.

STRESS TECHNIQUE: The patient exercised for 5.0 minutes to a heart rate of 133. ECG was normal. Patient achieved 7.0 METS.

IMAGE TECHNIQUE: The patient was injected with 4.2 millicuries of thallous chloride and subsequently imaged on the gated tomographic SPECT system.

IMAGE ANALYSIS: There is normal LV myocardial perfusion. The LV systolic ejection fraction is normal at 79%. There is normal global and regional wall motion of the left ventricle.

CONCLUSIONS:
1. Normal ECG stress.
2. Reduced aerobic capacity of 7 METS.
3. Normal LV myocardial perfusion.
4. Normal LV systolic ejection fraction of 79%.
5. Normal global and regional wall motion of the left ventricle.
