1 doctor agrees
In brief: No
Many times in medicine a single test cannot be counted on to rule out disease completely.
Even though stress testing is a very good test to evaluate the blood flow to the heart, it is only one piece of the diagnostic puzzle and sometimes a cardiac catheterization is needed to better decide if there is a problem.

In brief: Probably
But not with absoulute 100% certainty.
Still, it is a highly useful test.
