A Study to Compare Conventional Heart Echo Measurements with Newer 2 and 3 Dimensional Measurements of Mechanical Heart Strain after Trastuzumab Infusion
Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.

About this study
The purpose of this study is to compare conventional assessment of systolic ventricular function on a 2D heart echo with an assessment of more immediate changes in heart mechanics using 2D and 3D measurements of deformation and strain in patients undergoing infusion of Trastuzumab for breast cancer.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Please contact the study team to discuss whether or not you are eligible to participate in a study.
