Heart Failure - No Symptoms
The only tests I have had are EKG and Stress test. I had one of each last year and this year. There was no mention of a scar.

I think when there is a heart attack there is sometimes a scar and MRI would show it.
It could be that @penn1023 is suggesting that a scar might only show up on an MRI. It would be a good question to ask your cardiologist, just to see if that is the case. I'm not familiar with heart MRIs. Have you had a CT scan of your heart? This would show any calcifications in the heart and you would also know what your calcium score is.
