In brief: Depends

The test is done for various reasons such as to look at the coronary arteries or to evaluate valves.
No blockages in the arteries, normal pressures, normal contraction of the heart, and no leakage or blocks in the valves would be a normal test. Well also normal size of the heart chambers, no clots or humors.

In brief: No blockages

"normal" means that there are no blockages to the blood flow and the arteries are in the usual positions.
It also implies that the squeezing function of the heart (the ejection fraction) was also normal (55-70%).
