abstract

  • Breast RT using contemporary techniques can be delivered without evidence of early subclinical LV dysfunction or injury as measured by echocardiography and hsTnI in patients treated with anthracyclines and trastuzumab. Future studies should focus on identifying alternative biomarkers to elucidate early RT-induced cardiovascular effects and further characterizing long-term cardiovascular outcomes associated with contemporary breast RT.
