An echo shows many different things. Where the stress test aims to see how you respond to stress (like exercise) from a cardiovascular standpoint, the echo will look at the structure and function of your heart. Yes, it is possible to have a normal stress test and an abnormal echo, or the other way around. However, it's a good sign if you have one normal test first. Best wishes for normal results!
