Rezumat:

Forty-eight-year old woman with left-sided mastectomy due to breast cancer received radiotherapy (RT) to the chest wall by a direct electron field. The internal mammary and medial supraclavicular lymph nodes were also irradiated with an anterior mixed photon–electron field. The radiation field was planned using a patient-specific treatment planning computed tomography (CT). Radiation dose was 50 Gy in 25 fractions. Radiation effect on cardiac function was assessed by conventional echocardiography and strain rate imaging (SRI), obtained before and 2 months after RT.
