TMT positive

My father had a health check up and the TMT test came out positive. The doctor has advised to go for angiogram. Are we going in the right direction? And can the angiogram turn out to be no blockages found? Are there any risks involved in angiogram ?

Planning Angiogram after positive TMT is a standard practice. So don't worry about that.  About 15% of positive TMT's are false positives (can have no blockages).  Coronary Angiogram is relatively very safe procedure
