Some chemotherapy and cancer treatments can cause heart problems, be it a rise in blood pressure or an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
Cardio-oncology services at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center allow us to connect you quickly with a cardiologist for pre-treatment screenings or to treat diseases that arise because of your cancer treatment.
With a cardiology specialist embedded in the cancer team, we can help you to see a cardiologist soon for an evaluation. Our goal is to protect your heart as much as possible while we treat your cancer.
Our cardio-oncology team will help to lessen those effects, treating any side effects accordingly and giving guidance on how to prevent future heart disease.
Patients diagnosed with cancer may need echocardiogram, cardiac MRI, or stress tests depending on the situation. University of Maryland has cutting-edge technology, allowing us to provide the best insight into your heart’s performance.
These advanced imaging options allow us to see the heart's function in real time and evaluate your heart and the potential for heart disease.
Should you need a referral to a cardio-oncologist, your treatment team will help connect you to a cardiologist or you can call 410-328-7877.
