Early diagnosis of subclinical cardiac injury may allow the initiation of cardioprotective therapy and preventing the interruption of optimal cancer therapy and the development of irreversible cardiac dysfunction. In this article, we review the role of two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE), beyond the common left ventricle global longitudinal strain in the diagnosis of early subclinical cardiac injury in patients treated with cancer therapies.
