Contrast in the Time of Cardio-Oncology – CME

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

In this webinar we discuss the when and why to use ultrasound enhancing agents (UEAs). This includes when two or more LV segments cannot be visualized adequately for the assessment of LV function (LVEF and RWM assessment) and/or in settings in which the study indication requires accurate analysis of RWMA (JASE 2018). Current information on safety and optimization is discussed and we explore Cardio-Oncology and how best to monitor cardiotoxicity. Lastly, we cover current updates of UEA roles in the evaluation of masses including perfusion techniques.
