Brief Answer:
Yes Angiography is needed.

Detailed Answer:
HI XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query.

If TMT is positive then yes he has to get Angiography done . But I need to know did your father had any symptoms like Chest Pain , Breathlessness while doing TMT. If yes then yes definitely TMT is required.

But if there were no symptoms then also the best thing is to get Angiography but it is not mandatory. He can be managed with medicines as long as he doesn't have any chest pain or breathing difficulty.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask .

Regards.
