In brief: Test result

If I presume your Dad is the 87y/o person listed on this then the test result has good implications.
The gross implication is that there is coronary artery disease present and it isn't producing a lot of ischemia. In an 87y/o without symptoms or minor symptoms, medical therapy is appropriate.
