Description on ECG as slight abonormaility ST-T v6

I had a ECG today. The description on ECG is "Slight abnormality ST-T (V6)" 632
Doctor told it is ok . Is it a conductive problem/Attribute of the ECG machine.
What does the comment on ECG report mean?

Hi, normally when there is cardiac ischemia or reduced blood supply to the heart, it is reflected in the ST T segment, as ST segment elevation or depression or as T wave inversion. The changes in one lead are reflected in the opposite lead also. To give the benefit of doubt single lead changes are also reported, so that the clinician can correlate with clinical symptoms and lab tests to make a diagnosis. Based on collective data, your doctor has given you the results. Regards.
