Brief Answer:
Showing high risk for ischemic heart disease...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concerns.

If the ECG stress test revealed T waves 2/3, this means, that the testing was positive for ischemic heart disease (IHD). CT-angiogram will show possible blockage of heart blood vessels.

You should wait for ct-angiogram report first before confirming IHD.

If any other query, feel free to ask.

Brief Answer:
Yes,can wait for another few weeks,no problem for you...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back my dear,

Yes, you can wait for another few weeks to run ct-angiogram, do not worry. Unless, you will notice any unusual symptom, and if yes, should run to ER for immediate evaluation and treatment. Otherwise, you can safely wait for another few weeks.

Good luck!
