Answer

Echocardiography (ECG) is indicated for possible arrhythmia resulting from cardiac involvement.

Multiple-gate acquisition (MUGA) scanning is used to evaluate the ejection fraction before chemotherapy treatment, especially if anthracyclines will be used, as these agents have a potential cardiotoxic effect.
