In the last twenty years, with the improved survival of cancer patients, has significantly increased the detection of cardiovascular complications related to cancer treatment, even very late. To answer this need for cardiovascular protection of cancer patients, the Italian Society of CardiovascularEchography (SIEC), has recently established a Study Group on Echocardio-Oncology. Among the objectives that the Group considered it necessary to identify, there are the promotion of conferences and courses on this subject, and the scientific objectives. In fact, have been defined seven areas of interest to support and promote scientific research in the field of prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment of myocardial dysfunction from antineoplastic therapy. This first document is the programmatic document of the Study Group.
