Figure 20 – Concept of a rational strategy for evaluating and integrating modalities in a logical sequence of investigation of stable patients. It begins with the best rationalization for formulating diagnostic hypotheses (I), going on to the most basic tests (II), such as ECG/ET, ECHO, CS, continuing, as necessary, to more advanced non-invasive imaging methods (III), such as angio-CT, MPS, and CMR. The non-invasive tests, whether basic or advanced, should serve as “filters” for invasive testing, i.e. cardiac catheterization (IV), which should serve in planning advanced treatment only in patients under consideration for myocardial revascularization.234
