Background and purposeIn our institute, breast cancer patients undergoing adjuvant treatment are included in a protocol aimed to reduce cardiovascular morbidity (SAFE-2014, NCT2236806), assessing preclinical heart damage with heart speckle-tracking ultrasound. To develop a dose constraint related to subclinical heart damage, a reliable delineation of heart substructures based on a pre-existing guideline was made.Patients and methodsHeart substructures of 16 left-sided breast cancer patients… CONTINUE READING
