Overview

In this broadcast Dr Olga Toro-Salazar (Connecticut Children's Medical Center, US), Tiffany Berthod (Connecticut Children's Medical Center, US), Prof Dan Lenihan (Saint Francis Healthcare System, US) and Prof Joe Carver (University of Pennsylvania, US) will be exploring the vital topic of "Cardiac Surveillance of Cancer Treatment in Children: The Role of Multimodality Imaging”.

As cancer therapies can pose significant risks to cardiac health, it is essential to monitor and mitigate these effects. Our experts will discuss how multimodality imaging is enhancing the safety and efficacy of cancer treatment in children.

The partnership combines Radcliffe’s rapidly growing global community and expertise in delivering the most innovative virtual events, with the knowledge and experience of IC-OS’s members, to curate broadcasts that challenge current practice and have real-world patient benefits.
