You have already: Undergone many of the tests to exclude any ischemia to heart muscle, but the only way to rule out any congenital coronary artery anomalies is by angiogram. Talk with your cardiologist, but chance of finding any significant anomalies seem small to me with all negative results so far.

Likely should: That is a long list of tests. I often only get an echocardiogram and electrocardiogram along with a thorough history and physical. I obtain more tests if those the MRI should have documented the coronary artery course. Please confirm your questions with your doctor though.
