There is a growing population of cancer patients who are thankfully living longer due to early detection and better treatments. However, the effects of caner-related treatment (including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and radiation) are known to have adverse cardiovascular effects which can occur during treatment or many years following the completion of treatment. There are multiple goals in the field of Cardio Oncology, but they can be distilled down to identifying high risk patients for the development of adverse cardiac events and intervening to minimize those risks in order to avoid interruptions in their life-saving cancer treatment. In addition, some patients continue to benefit from routine cardiology follow up after treatment is completed in order to monitor for the development of those same adverse cardiac effects.
