Dr Fei Sun speaks to ecancer at the European Lung Cancer Congress 2019 about cardiac events following radical radiotherapy for lung cancer.

Dr Sun begins by outlining some of the cardiac events in question, and follows this by explaining some of the main trends that have been found so far.

He gives support as to why radiotherapy might be causing the events, and suggests how radiologists might be able to adapt treatment accordingly to these findings.
