Brief Answer:
Coronary Artery Disease, at the worst

Detailed Answer:
Dear friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

At the worst, it may mean a recent heart attack (Coronary Artery Disease)

It could be a disease of the nerve (Conduction system) of the heart
It may also be from hypertrophy of the left ventricle (say from blood pressure)
Rarely, an incidental finding
Your doctor is right - in doing the stress imaging study

Take care
Good luck
