Over the past decade, the cardiovascular care of patients with cancer has evolved as a subspecialty driven by novel therapies that can cure or control patients, allowing many patients to be living long enough to experience the potential cardiotoxic effects of these treatments. The purpose of this conference is to provide a case-based curriculum that addresses important clinical topics relevant to the cardiovascular health of patients with cancer. Clinical experts from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and around the country will present an up-to-date overview on the best practice strategies in the evaluation and management of heart disease in cancer patients from early diagnosis, treatment and long-term surveillance. All presentations will include devoted time to permit interaction between audience members and presenters.
There will be a separate hands on, computer-based session on advanced echo imaging techniques of strain imaging and 3D quantification of left ventricular function in cardio-oncology.
This course is intended for cardiologists, internists, hematologists/oncologists and other affiliated healthcare professionals who are involved in the care of cancer patients or have a special interest in this area.
