You don't: you determine viable vs non viable. Stunned vs hibernating is a matter of chronic ischemia (hibernating) and an acute event (stunned)

Stunned/Hibernating: Stunned myocardium has normal perfusion but abnormal wall motion. Hibernating myocardium has abnormal perfusion and abnormal wall motion. Hope this answers your question.
