Abstract

Purpose of Review: Imaging modalities play an important role in the diagnosis and management of cardiotoxicity and cardiac tumors. In this review, we provide an overview of the imaging modalities that are relevant to the field of cardio-oncology. Recent Findings: Cardiac magnetic resonance provides comprehensive tissue characterization in the assessment of cardiac tumors and cardiomyopathy. The combination of positron emission tomography/computed tomography offers improved localization of lesions, staging, targeting of biopsy and therapy, and greater confidence in interpretation. Summary: Overall, cardiac imaging plays a critical role in the assessment and management of cardiac tumors either for surgical planning or for initiation of appropriate cancer therapies. For certain higher risk cancer patients and survivors, routine surveillance with cardiac imaging may be warranted so appropriate interventions can be instituted to stabilize or even improve the cardiac dysfunction.
