There has been a remarkable parallel growth in the technology and application of interventional and nuclear cardiology techniques during the past decade. The interventionalist and nuclear cardiologist will be increasingly interdependent in the future. Pre-PTCA evaluation requires objective, high-resolution data regarding ischemia and viability. This will allow better targeting of the ever-expanding array of revascularization techniques. Practical and effective follow-up of patients undergoing interventional treatment is an ongoing need. The challenge remains to develop improved prognostication through a better understanding of the peri-PTCA perturbations of vasomotor tone, tracer kinetics, and wall motion. Finally, clinical research efforts must also address the issue of cost-effectiveness. In the future, application of all noninvasive technology to the patient undergoing interventional techniques will be guided, to a large degree, by outcome research.
