At least for the near term, the assessment of myocardial perfusion with non-invasive imaging will be the domain of the clinician and not the computer. The development of automated or semi-automated computerized quantification programs has been driven by the need to enhance the performance of the human interpreter. To this end, the relative impact of new technologies for quantification must be evaluated in terms of whether a technology can improve diagnostic accuracy, standardize interpretation, and derive numerical values that have some clinical consequence.
