This is a clinical practice guideline for childhood cancer survivors (CCS). The guideline reviews the risk of cardiac dysfunction in CCS and provides recommendations on screening technique and intervals for asymptomatic patients and follow-up care for abnormal results.

Outcomes of interest include all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, development of clinical heart failure and development of congestive heart failure in CCS.
