London

ICIS Interactive - Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours

A stimulating and engaging learning experience

This highly commended one-day teaching course will be limited to 36 participants, each with their own imaging workstation and content delivered through lectures and hands-on case-based learning.

Each ICIS interactive course is designed to provide the best educational experience, achieved through:

  • An expert international faculty drawn from the ICIS Fellowship and other invited speakers
  • Mentored review of 35-40 cases on workstations, each case chosen with specific learning points
  • A workbook to reinforce learning

The course will highlight current imaging techniques, image interpretation, and pitfalls in the evaluation of solid and cystic pancreatic tumours.

What participants have said about the ICIS Interactive pancreatic workshop -

'Truly the most useful teaching/learning I have been to for years. The cases preloaded on the workstations keep you on your toes and well-placed case review that is fully interactive makes for an intense but really useful learning experience' - Dr. Miranda Harvie

'Fantastic day, best imaging course I have ever attended' - Dr. Paul Burn

'Hard to improve on - excellent!' - Dr. Zaid Viney

New window of opportunity to prevent cardiovascular, diseases

Published: Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:09:42 GMT

Future prevention and treatment strategies for vascular diseases may lie in the evaluation of early brain imaging tests long before heart attacks or strokes occur, according to a systematic review conducted by a team of cardiologists, neuroscientists, and psychiatrists.

Real-time tracking system developed to monitor dangerous bacteria inside body

Published: Wed, 22 Oct 2014 20:40:41 GMT

Combining a PET scanner with a new chemical tracer that selectively tags specific types of bacteria, researchers working with mice report they have devised a way to detect and monitor in real time infections with dangerous Gram-negative bacteria. These increasingly drug-resistant bacteria are responsible for a range of diseases, including fatal pneumonias and various bloodstream or solid-organ infections acquired in and outside the hospital.

New treatment resolves hazardous airway complication in child with heart disease

Published: Wed, 22 Oct 2014 16:32:52 GMT

In children with a heart condition, lymph can ooze into airways and dry into a rubbery, potentially life-threatening cast. A new, noninvasive treatment cleared this blockage in a 6-year-old boy, clinicians report.

Making health services prices available linked to lower total claims payments

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:20:17 GMT

Searching a health service pricing website before using the service was associated with lower payments for clinical services such as advanced imaging and laboratory tests, according to a study.

Detecting cancer earlier is goal of new medical imaging technology

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 15:14:03 GMT

A new medical imaging method could help physicians detect cancer and other diseases earlier than before, speeding treatment and reducing the need for invasive, time-consuming biopsies. The potentially lifesaving technique uses nanotechnology and shortwave infrared light to reveal small cancerous tumors and cardiovascular lesions deep inside the body.

Exploring x-ray phase tomography with synchrotron radiation

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 15:12:31 GMT

X-ray phase tomography is an imaging technique that uses penetrating X-rays to create volumetric views through "slices" or sections of soft biological tissues, such as tumors, and it offers strongly enhanced contrast compared to conventional CT scans. Yet scientists still do not know which X-ray phase tomography methods are best suited to yield optimized results for a wide variety of conditions.

See-through sensors open new window into the brain

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 01:23:45 GMT

Developing invisible implantable medical sensor arrays, a team of engineers has overcome a major technological hurdle in researchers’ efforts to understand the brain. The team has now described its technology, which has applications in fields ranging from neuroscience to cardiac care and even contact lenses.

See-through, one-atom-thick, carbon electrodes powerful tool to study brain disorders

Published: Mon, 20 Oct 2014 18:15:37 GMT

A graphene, one-atom-thick microelectrode now solves a major problem for investigators looking at brain circuitry. Pinning down the details of how individual neural circuits operate in epilepsy and other brain disorders requires real-time observation of their locations, firing patterns, and other factors.

Pathological gambling is associated with altered opioid system in the brain

Published: Sun, 19 Oct 2014 00:54:07 GMT

All humans have a natural opioid system in the brain. Now new research has found that the opioid system of pathological gamblers responds differently to those of normal healthy volunteers.

Smartphone approach for examining progression of diabetic eye disease offers comparable results to traditional method

Published: Sat, 18 Oct 2014 16:26:48 GMT

A smartphone-based tool may be an effective alternative to traditional ophthalmic imaging equipment in evaluating and grading severity of a diabetic eye disease, according to a study. The results of the research indicate the lower-cost method could be useful for bringing the service to patients in isolated or underserved communities.
