in background of hypertension , abnormal lipid level and equivocal TMT definately required further test ,
CT coronary angio has high negative predictive value means if CT Coronary angio shows no blockage means no need to do further test but if it shows blockage then you need to go cath angio
in your case you have equivocal TMT thats why CT coronary angio was advice and its a best option
take care
