Depends on your age and your risk factors. If you are smoker or diabetic or having high blood pressure or you have high bad cholesterol (LDL) or low HDL or having family history of Coronary heart disease you should consider doing treadmill as well. Tilt test should also be included in your management . If you have a lot of anxiety man hinging that also is important.
