Two patients with bicuspid aortic valve were selected for aortic valve repair using the Ozaki procedure. Patient-specific models of their aortic roots were generated based on computed tomography data and were 3-dimensional printed using a flexible resin. The models allowed sizing of the valve leaflets and practicing of leaflet suturing. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)

This paper aims to empower and inform cardio-oncologists by providing a practical guide to the clinical application of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in the rapidly evolving field of cardio-oncology. Specifically, we describe how CMR can be used to assess the cardiovascular effects of cancer therapy. The CMR literature, relevant societal guidelines, indication-specific imaging protocols, and methods to overcome some of the challenges encountered in performing and accessing CMR are reviewed.
