|Indication||Test||Class||Level of Evidence|
|1. Identification of inducible ischemia in the distribution of the “culprit lesion” or in remote areas in patients at intermediate or low risk for major adverse cardiac events.||Stress MPI with ECG gating whenever possible||I||B|
|2. Identification of the severity/extent of inducible ischemia in patients whose angina is satisfactorily stabilized with medical therapy or in whom diagnosis is uncertain.||Stress MPI with ECG gating whenever possible||I||A|
|3. Identification of hemodynamic significance of coronary stenosis after coronary arteriography.||Stress MPI||I||B|
|4. Measurement of baseline LV function.||RNA or gated SPECT||I||B|
|5. Identification of the severity/extent of disease in patients with ongoing suspected ischemia symptoms when ECG changes are not diagnostic.||Rest MPI||IIa||B|
ECG indicates electrocardiography; LV, left ventricular; MPI, myocardial perfusion imaging; RNA, radionuclide angiography; SPECT, single-photon emission computed tomography.
