Hi there.. I can understand your concern.. to know about coronary artery(artery supplying heart) blockage, you can get Ecg first then if any changes get Echo, treadmill test which tell indirectly whether you have any chance of heart attack or any part of your heart not getting enough blood due to blockage of vessels.. to directly visualize arteries and know the patency CT angiography or MR angiography is available.. please consult nearby cardiologist once..
