Dear patient,

I am concerned about the ST segment depressions, which may relate to obstruction of the arteries of the heart. You had several risk factors for cardiac disease including smoking. The most useful application of the heart ultrasound would be actually after the stress test at peak stress, and I dont know if that was done, if it was not it should be done for sure.

Yours truly,
