ObjectiveSurvivors of childhood cancer treated with anthracyclines carry the risk for developing late-onset cardiotoxicity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate left ventricular (LV) function in this patient group and compare it with healthy controls by means of conventional and speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) after exposure to chemotherapy.
