Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your mail with diligence and reviewed report. To answer your question briefly yes it shows that everything is normal. It also says but does not mention that your basal EKG (before exercise) was not suggestive of coronary artery disease and with exercise, response of your blood pressure and heart rate was appropriate. You did a fairly good amount of exercise and that exercise did not effect your heart in any negative way (that is what no inducible ischemia means). I hope that answers your question. If you have any followup query, I shall be only too happy to answer that. Good Luck.
Best Wishes.
