These are nonspecific findings found on an EKG which may represent areas of low blood flow to the heart.  Unfortunately, the EKG is not very specific and should only be used in the right setting.  Meaning, that if you aren't having any chest pain or any shortness of breath that EKG most likely is a false positive.  To be more certain your could have an echo stress test.  I would not have a catheterization unless there is ongoing chest pain or shortness of breath.
