in the VLA view (top row) shows mild to moderate photopenia
the apex, infero-apical and distal inferior wall and severe
photopenia of the basilar half of the inferior wall. This
is best seen in the 10th frame.
In comparison, the resting images reveal near complete reversibility
within the inferior wall with
persistent apical photopenia.
The 10th frame of the post-stress SA view (fifth
row of images) shows severe photopenia of the posterolateral
wall with near complete reversibilty in the resting phase
Thus, the study demonstrates reversible
photopenia or ischemia of the inferior and posterolateral
is also a mild area of fixed apical photopenia.

saphenous vein graft to the RCA (or the RCA diatal to the
bulls-eye reconstructed images and the 2.5 standard deviation
blackout plots, shown below, confirms the above findings.
