Are my ejection fractions good or bad?
On my "NC Myocardial Perfusion Rest+Stress SPECT Multi” test, my resting ejection fraction is 69% at rest and 73% post-stress? Is this good or bad?

The normal left ventricular ejection fraction is in the range of 55% or greater, and it normally increases with stress.
