TMT (Treadmill Exercise ECG) is positive for inducible ischemia , it is an indication for further work up – because at times, there may be false positive or false negatives. If you not willing to undergo angio, the next step is TMT with thallium isotope. It is the ideal non-invasive way to evaluate ischemia / to assess the PHYSIOLOGY (function) – to see whether the blood arriving at the heart muscle...consult nearest cardiologist they will do the needful.
