MSK Cardio-Oncology Symposium – Cardiovascular Health and Disease During and After Cancer Therapy : A case-based curriculum
Rockefeller Research LaboratoriesNew York, USA Visit the Venue to read more
Over the past decade, the cardiovascular care of patients with cancer has evolved as a subspecialty driven by novel therapies that can cure or control patients, allowing many patients to be living long enough to experience the potential cardiotoxic effects of these treatments. The purpose of this conference is to provide a case-based curriculum that addresses important clinical topics relevant to the cardiovascular health of patients with cancer. Clinical experts from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and around the country will present an up-to-date overview on the best practice strategies in the evaluation and management of heart disease in cancer patients from early diagnosis, treatment and long-term surveillance. All presentations will include devoted time to permit interaction between audience members and presenters. There will be a separate computer-based session on how to perform and analyze global longitudinal strain (details below).
This course is intended for cardiologists, internists, hematologists/oncologists and other affiliated healthcare professionals who are involved in the care of cancer patients or have a special interest in this area.
Computer Based Hands-On Learning Lab (Optional)
How to Perform and Analyze Global Longitudinal Strain (GLS) - Tips and Tricks
The aim of the learning lab is to provide participants personalized hands-on experience in GLS performance and analysis. Following an introductory lecture on the clinical application of strain, participants will analyze real cases pre-loaded on their own computer workstation under the supervision of the faculty. Tips on acquiring optimal 2D images for speckle tracking and step-by-step how to perform and analyze 2D GLS will be demonstrated with examples of common pitfalls to avoid. Seating is limited to allow each participant sufficient opportunity to interact with faculty - please be sure to register early.
