International Cancer Imaging Society


Welcome !

Message from the President

"Welcome to the International Cancer Imaging Society (ICIS), a professional body established to promote education and stimulate research in oncological imaging. ICIS promotes the exchange of ideas among radiologists and other physicians who specialize in cancer imaging. We hold our annual meetings at various locations in Europe, and satellite meetings are periodically conducted abroad in conjunction with national societies; past venues have included Hong Kong, South Africa, Kuwait, Hungary, Brazil and in October 2013, Korea. In February 2013 we held our inaugural one day, personalised, interactive teaching course in London - Masterclass in Imaging of Gynaecological Cancers. This was a great success, we held a repeat in September 2013 and it will run again in Paris on 3rd July 2014. This course is now sold out, but please register your interest for this and other courses in the series using the facility in the right hand panel.  The ICIS Interactive series has been developed to include a Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours, held for the first time in London in February 2014; we are planning to repeat this course later in 2014 - watch the website for further details!

The 14th ICIS Annual Teaching Course will be held in Heidelberg, Germany from October 9 to 11, 2014. Entitled "Working Together for the Patient", the meeting will be in association with the European Society of Oncologic Imaging (ESOI) and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) - do join us if you can!

I invite you to JOIN ICIS and become a Society member. You will benefit from reduced registration fees at all ICIS meetings, receive e-newsletters to keep you informed of Society news and highlighting recently published articles in our official journal CANCER IMAGING. Your membership and participation in the Society will help to further invigorate this exciting field of clinical practice and research."

New way to diagnose malaria by detecting parasite's waste in infected blood cells

Published: Sun, 31 Aug 2014 19:03:39 GMT

A technique that can detect malarial parasite's waste in infected blood cells has been developed by researchers. "There is real potential to make this into a field-deployable system, especially since you don't need any kind of labels or dye. It's based on a naturally occurring biomarker that does not require any biochemical processing of samples" says one of the senior authors of a paper.

This is your brain's blood vessels on drugs

Published: Thu, 28 Aug 2014 15:09:11 GMT

A laser-based method has been used to produce the first-ever set of images clearly and directly detailing how cocaine shuts down blood flow in the brain. This could help doctors and researchers better understand how drug abuse affects the brain, which may aid in improving brain-cancer surgery and tissue engineering, and lead to better treatment for recovering drug addicts.

First study of brain activation in multiple sclerosis using fNIRS

Published: Wed, 27 Aug 2014 19:17:50 GMT

Using functional near infrared spectroscopy, researchers showed differential brain activation patterns between people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and healthy controls. This is first MS study to examine brain activation using fNIRS during a cognitive task.

Xenon exposure shown to erase traumatic memories

Published: Wed, 27 Aug 2014 18:16:01 GMT

Xenon gas, used in humans for anesthesia and diagnostic imaging, has the potential to be a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and other memory-related disorders, researchers report. "We know from previous research that each time an emotional memory is recalled, the brain actually restores it as if it were a new memory. With this knowledge, we decided to see whether we could alter the process by introducing xenon gas immediately after a fear memory was reactivated," explained an author.

Protecting brains of very preterm infants

Published: Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:55:17 GMT

Premature babies are far more at risk than infants born at term of developing brain damage resulting in neurodevelopmental delay that may persist throughout their lives. A team of specialists in infant brain imaging has demonstrated that administering three doses of erythropoietin may help.

New technology may identify tiny strains in body tissues before injuries occur

Published: Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:52:33 GMT

Algorithms to identify weak spots in tendons, muscles and bones prone to tearing or breaking have been developed by researchers. The technology, which needs to be refined before it is used in patients, one day may help pinpoint minor strains and tiny injuries in the body’s tissues long before bigger problems occur.

Introducing the multi-tasking nanoparticle

Published: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:26:48 GMT

Dynamic nanoparticles (NPs) have been developed that could provide an arsenal of applications to diagnose and treat cancer. Built on an easy-to-make polymer, these particles can be used as contrast agents to light up tumors for MRI and PET scans or deliver chemo and other therapies to destroy tumors. In addition, the particles are biocompatible and have shown no toxicity.

Wii Balance Board induces changes in brains of people with multiple sclerosis

Published: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 13:10:39 GMT

A balance board accessory for a popular video game console can help people with multiple sclerosis (MS) reduce their risk of accidental falls, according to new research. Magnetic resonance imaging scans showed that use of the Nintendo Wii Balance Board system appears to induce favorable changes in brain connections associated with balance and movement.

Lung cancer rarely detected by current X-ray procedures

Published: Mon, 25 Aug 2014 12:48:34 GMT

Current X-ray examinations capture only 20 percent of cases of lung cancer, researcher say. With modern ultralow-dose CT, the radiologists hit the bull’s eye 90 per cent of the time.

Newly patented device could signal best bet for treatment of stroke patients

Published: Thu, 21 Aug 2014 15:56:34 GMT

A new device could soon be available to treat stroke more effectively. The ClotBust ER® fits on the head like a halo and delivers therapy to quickly bust clots that cause stroke. The ClotBust ER® has 16 transducers scattered around the inside -- designed to line up with the thin points in the skull: the temples and the foramen magnum in the base of the skull.
