Stressechoresults: abn stress ECG at 9.1mets, normal exercise stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia. What does this mean?

Probably normal: The ECG is accurate about 70-80% of the time in diagnosing cad. Adding stress echo or nuclear imaging improves accuracy to above 90% when patient reaches his or her target rate.
