Core Tip This article focuses on the potential capability of nuclear cardiology techniques to guide cardiac resynchronization therapy and to select patients for implantable cardioverter defibrillators. Radionuclide angiography and gated single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging have shown promise as predictors of outcome after device therapies. Combined positron emission tomography/computed tomography may identify the location of biventricular pacemaker leads and obtain left ventricular functional data, including contractile phase analysis. Cardiac imaging with autonomic radiotracers may predict cardiac resynchronization therapy response and may also identify patients at risk for sudden cardiac death, therefore potentially offering a way to select patients for these device treatments.
