ASSESSMENT OF GLOBAL LONGITUDINAL STRAIN AND GLOBAL CIRCUMFERENTIAL STRAIN USING CARDIOVASCULAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE IN CANCER PATIENTS RECEIVING CHEMOTHERAPY

abstract
Patients receiving cancer treatment are at risk of adverse cardiovascular (CV) effects, ranging from asymptomatic cardiac injury to symptomatic heart failure. Global longitudinal strain (GLS) and global circumferential strain (GCS) using CMR have demonstrated high sensitivity for the early detection of left ventricle (LV) dysfunction in patients receiving anthracycline chemotherapy, and while their use in assessing cardiac dysfunction has shown promising results, their complete role has yet to be determined.
