In conclusion, myocardial tissue characterization with quantitative ultrasonic indices descriptive of the physical state of the tissue is a promising approach to complement conventional echocardiography in the evaluation of patients with coronary artery disease. In particular, differentiation among hibernating, stunned and scarred myocardium may be possible on the basis of the experience accumulated thus far.
