The recent introduction of new tracers and stressors has increased the number of combinations of techniques that can be used for the diagnostic and prognostic stratification of patients with coronary artery disease. However, these new techniques still need to be standardized for clinical use. Thallium-201 scintigraphy is at present the most common method to assess transient ischemia and viability in patients. Dynamic exercise and dipyridamole show similar incidence of major cardiac complications and their use can be considered sufficiently safe. Further experimental and multicenter clinical studies are needed for 99mTc-Sestamibi and 99mTc-Teboroxime and for new stressors such as adenosine and dobutamine.
