Cancer Imaging Journal

Impact Factor 2.404

Cancer Imaging is the official journal of ICIS, it is an open access, peer-reviewed journal with original articles as well as reviews and editorials.  The journal encompasses CT, MRI, ultrasound, single photon and positron emission tomography, including multimodality imaging in all kinds of malignant tumours, plus new developments, techniques and innovations.

About ICIS

The International Cancer Imaging Society exists to meet the important challenges of advancing imaging in the multidisciplinary management of cancer.

We promote education in oncological imaging and stimulate research in the study of human tumour behaviour, bringing together radiologists with an interest in oncological imaging for the exchange of ideas, and to organise scientific meetings, multicentre research studies and postgraduate courses within the field.

MRI shows brain differences among ADHD patients

Published: Wed, 22 Nov 2017 09:31:06 EST

Information from brain MRIs can help identify people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and distinguish among subtypes of the condition, according to a new study.

Turtles and technology advance understanding of lung abnormality

Published: Tue, 21 Nov 2017 13:25:35 EST

A study of an unusual snapping turtle with one lung found shared characteristics with humans born with one lung who survive beyond infancy. New digital 3-D anatomical models made the detailed research possible.

Revolutionary imaging technique uses CRISPR to map DNA mutations

Published: Tue, 21 Nov 2017 09:51:50 EST

A new nanomapping technology could transform the way disease-causing genetic mutations are diagnosed and discovered.

'Magic' sinus paths could mean new instructions for nasal sprays

Published: Mon, 20 Nov 2017 09:00:43 EST

Sinus infections, inflammation and nasal congestion constantly plague Americans, often leading to unpleasant symptoms and even missed days of work. Traditional nasal spray anti-inflammatory medications attempt to treat the symptoms noninvasively, but are not very efficient in transmitting the active drug ingredients directly into the sinus cavities.

Brain activity buffers against worsening anxiety

Published: Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:17:43 EST

Boosting activity in brain areas related to thinking and problem-solving may also protect against worsening anxiety, suggests a new study. Using noninvasive brain imaging, the researchers found that at-risk people were less likely to develop anxiety if they had higher activity in a region of the brain responsible for complex mental operations. The results may be a step towards tailoring psychological therapies to the specific brain functioning of individual patients.

Noninvasive brain imaging shows readiness of trainees to perform operations

Published: Thu, 16 Nov 2017 19:00:05 EST

While simulation platforms have been used to train surgeons before they enter an actual operating room (OR), few studies have evaluated how well trainees transfer those skills from the simulator to the OR. Now, a study that used noninvasive brain imaging to evaluate brain activity has found that simulator-trained medical students successfully transferred those skills to operating on cadavers and were faster than peers who had no simulator training.

New imaging technique peers inside living cells

Published: Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:21:29 EST

Called Ultrasound Bioprobe, a non-invasive approach allows researchers to view sub-cellular structures and their mechanical behavior at nanoscale resolution.

Manganese-based MRI contrast agent may be safer alternative to gadolinium-based agents

Published: Wed, 15 Nov 2017 12:46:10 EST

Researchers have developed a manganese-based magnetic resonance imaging contrast agent, a potential alternative to gadolinium-based agents, which carry significant health risks for some patients.

Take a fantastic 3-D voyage through the brain with new immersive virtual reality system

Published: Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:17:58 EST

A new immersive virtual reality (VR) experience now offers a unique way to visualize and interact with large volumes of 3-D anatomical brain data. The system has applications in neurotechnology development, research and surgeon training.

Brain structure, cognitive function in treated HIV-positive individuals

Published: Mon, 13 Nov 2017 12:37:28 EST

Adults with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and good viral suppression on combination antiretroviral therapy had poorer cognition and reduced brain thickness and volume on magnetic resonance imaging than adults without HIV, but changes over time in cognitive performance and brain structure were similar between the two groups over two years.

New tool identifies headache patients at risk of aneurysms in emergency department

Published: Mon, 13 Nov 2017 09:55:22 EST

A new tool to identify potentially fatal aneurysms in patients with headaches who seem otherwise well will help emergency departments to identify high-risk patients, improve survival rates and cut out unnecessary imaging, according to new research.

Scientists create 'tracking' nanoagents to illuminate very small diseased tissues

Published: Thu, 09 Nov 2017 09:31:05 EST

Polymer nanoagents can 'light up' tiny areas of diseased tissues that conventional methods fail to detect.

Wireless handheld spectrometer transmits data to smartphone

Published: Wed, 08 Nov 2017 12:40:09 EST

A new smartphone-compatible device that is held like a pencil could make it practical to acquire spectral images of everyday objects and may eventually be used for point-of-care medical diagnosis in remote locations.

Liquid biopsy spots aggressive pediatric brainstem cancer earlier without surgery

Published: Mon, 06 Nov 2017 09:01:28 EST

A particularly aggressive form of pediatric cancer can be spotted reliably by the genetic fragments it leaves behind in children's biofluids, opening the door to non-surgical biopsies and providing a way to gauge whether such tumors respond to treatment, according to researchers.

Innovative heart device is safe and effective, study finds

Published: Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:12:33 EDT

A new study has found that a pioneering device to repair heart valves is safe and effective, and can reduce the invasiveness and side effects of conventional mitral valve surgery. The Harpoon Mitral Valve Repair System is deployed through a small opening between the ribs, and repairs the heart while it continues to beat.

New research shows where in the brain the earliest signs of Alzheimer's occur

Published: Wed, 01 Nov 2017 12:24:27 EDT

For the first time, researchers have convincingly shown where in the brain the earliest signs of Alzheimer's occur. The discovery could potentially become significant to future Alzheimer's research while contributing to improved diagnostics.

Why do some head knocks cause more damage than others?

Published: Tue, 31 Oct 2017 14:37:20 EDT

Veteran sailors know that rogue waves can rise suddenly in mid-ocean to capsize even the largest vessels. Now it appears that a similar phenomenon called shear shock wave occurs in the concussed brain. It may help explain why some head knocks cause so much more harm than others.

Locus coeruleus activity linked with hyperarousal in PTSD

Published: Tue, 31 Oct 2017 12:03:11 EDT

A new study has linked signs of heightened arousal and reactivity -- a core symptom of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) -- to overactivity of the locus coeruleus (LC), a brain region that mediates arousal and reactivity. By combining bodily responses and brain imaging data researchers have provided direct human evidence for a theory over 30 years old.
