The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of the essential role that cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has in the field of cardio-oncology. Recent findings: CMR has been increasingly used for early identification of cancer therapy related cardiac dysfunction (CTRCD) due to its precision in detecting subtle changes in cardiac function and for myocardial tissue characterization. Summary: CMR is able to identify subclinical CTRCD in patients receiving potentially cardiotoxic chemotherapy and guide initiation of cardio protective therapy. Multiparametric analysis with myocardial strain, tissue characterization play a critical role in understanding important clinical questions in cardio-oncology.
