Hello,

Welcome to just answer,

Old septal infarct is a area of tissue death (necrosis) that is caused by a local lack of oxygen due to obstruction of the tissue's blood supply.

This is a area of tissue that undergoes necrosis as a result of obstruction of local blood supply, as by a thrombus or embolus.

On nuclear test this means area which is damaged in past.

Thanks
