    Nowadays, there is a wide array of imaging studies available for the evaluation of coronary artery disease, each with its particular indications and strengths. Cardiac single photon emission tomography is mostly used to evaluate myocardial perfusion, having experienced recent marked improvements in image acquisition. Cardiac PET has its main utility in perfusion imaging, atherosclerosis and endothelial function evaluation, and viability assessment. Cardiovascular computed tomography has long been used as a reference test for non-invasive evaluation of coronary lesions and anatomic characterization. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance is currently the reference standard for non-invasive ventricular function evaluation and myocardial scarring delineation. These specific strengths have been enhanced with the advent of hybrid equipment, offering a true integration of different imaging modalities into a single, simultaneous and comprehensive study.
