Is another stress echo necessary?

I had a stress echo in September of 2011 and have been referred for another one. I am 51, mildly hypertensive treated with Lisinopril 20mg, exercise 45 minutes a day 4-6 days a week. Do I need it?

It is very useful information for management of a hypertensive patient.
