In brief: Not worrisome

The report says it all: "minimal" coronary disease.
Many otherwise healthy people have cholesterol build-up in their arteries that causes no problems. Having said that, it's a reminder that diet and exercise and avoidance of smoking are needed to keep these from turning into problems. The 55% ejection fraction is normal. It means the heart is pumping well.

In brief: Talk to your doctor

The findings you report indicate that the heart is pumping blood efficiently and that there is not a lot of plaque in the coronary arteries.
However catheterization results need to be discussed in detail with the doctor who ordered the test since the clinical context is critical for analyzing the results.
