Is a cardiolite stress test necessary after cardiac stent placement?

My husband had a cardiac stent placed 5years ago after an MI and has had several follow up cardiolite stress tests and nothing has changed and now his cardiologist wants to do another cardiolite stress test (only been a year since the last one) - is this really necessary?
