Cardiac Magnetic Resonance for Early Detection of Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy Induced Cardiotoxicity in Breast Cancer (CareBest)

2017-10-11 16:28:59 | BioPortfolio


Chemotherapy or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity are well-recognized side effects in patients with cancer. The clinical significance of cardiotoxicity is growing with increasing cancer survivor-ship.

Left ventricular (LV) functional assessment is the standard of reference to diagnose chemotherapy- or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity. The investigators will investigate the usefulness of T1 mapping parameters for early detection and prediction of chemotherapy-, radiation therapy-, or other therapy-induced cardiotoxicity in breast cancer patients This study aimed to achieve early detection of chemotherapy- or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity using T1 mapping magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and determine a prognostic imaging factor of chemotherapy- or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity in patients treated for breast cancer.


Screening and follow-up cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) protocols for diagnosis of cardiotoxicity will be conducted in patients with breast cancer who have received or are planned to receive treatment for breast cancer. The protocol will include T1 and T2 mapping and cine imaging of the LV myocardium.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.
