Chemotherapy Induced Cognitive Impairment (CICI) Assessment Clinic
Chemotherapy (and radiation) induced cognitive impairment (CICI) is an adverse effect experienced by some individuals following chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments for cancer. Some individuals may notice changes in thinking, also known as “chemo fog” or “chemo brain” even after the conclusion of these treatments.
CICI is a diagnosable condition that is increasing in prevalence with increased survivorship; 14-85% prevalence among individuals with solid tumors.
