WHAT IS CARDIO-ONCOLOGY?

Protecting Your Heart While You Fight Cancer

Cardio-Oncology is the care of heart problems in cancer patients. These problems may arise as a result of common cancer treatments e.g. anthracyclines (doxorubicin, daunorubicin), Herceptin (trastuzumab) and others (5FU, Velcade, Ibrutinib etc.) and radiotherapy. 

Dr Ghosh is an expert in assessing patients from a cardiac perspective prior to the initiation of therapy and monitoring patients while they complete cancer treatment. 

Using new techniques [advanced ultrasound scans of the heart (4D echocardiography), cardiac MRI and blood tests], Dr Ghosh aims to detect cardiac issues at an early stage of cancer treatment to enable the early initiation of heart tretaments.
