I had an abnormal resting EKG so I was sent to have a Cardiolite test. The Cardiolite result is normal but the EKG taken during the test is abnormal--exactly like the resting EKG. My cardiologist told me I had nothing to worry about because the Cardiolite's far more sensitive and accurate than the EKG. I think he said what's abnormal about my EKG is a "concave T segment." I'm not sure I heard it right but it's something like that. If this makes sense, please explain to me what it means? Is this kind of abnomality serious? Why do I have this abnormality in my EKG yet my stress Cardiolite test turned out normal? Perhaps I should've asked my cardiologist out right but I didn't want to bother him with too many questions. But after I thought it over, I do want to know the answers to these questions. I'm female and in my late 50's. No history of heart disease but has borderline high cholesterol (200-210) for years.
