Stress test may be done to diagnose coronary artery disease.

Possibly the left ventricle of your heart is not moving normally and the ejection fraction may be lower than normal.

Medically called as Left Ventrical hypokinesia.

I hope this helps

Usually stress test is done to indirectly check if patient may have blockage in coronary artery and as a result of exercise their is ischemia.

Chest X-Ray is usually able to diagnose congestive cardiac failure.In patients with congestive cardiac failure their is cough which don't respond to normal treatment for cough.In such cases cause of cardiac failure may be further investigated with stress test and echo-cardiography.
