Hi there...
If you are hypertensive and ECG ,ETT suggestive of ST changes than you should go for CT Coronary angiography to rule out coronary artrey disease,because ECG and ETT both are not as senstive and specific as CT coronary angio which is 88-99% senstive and 93-96% specific for the detection of coronary artrey disease.
