Background: This study evaluates the incremental prognostic value of qualitative thallium-201 imaging and coronary angiography in patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease. Methods: Within 1 month, 150 patients underwent diagnostic symptom-limited ECG stress test, thallium imaging, and coronary angiography. The incremental power of sequentially performed tests was evaluated by the overall likelihood ratio statistic. Results: At 3-year follow-up, 16 patients had died from a cardiac cause, 12 had suffered a nonfatal myocardial infarction, and 34 had undergone revascularization procedures more than 60 days after testing. Considering hard events, thallium imaging did not improve the prognostic information provided by clinical exercise stress test data, while coronary angiography increased the predictive power of the combined, exercise stress test, and scintigraphic data (P
