Cancer Imaging Journal

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

I am so glad I came to ICIS. It was an excellent meeting with very interesting topics and with excellent facilities.  It is always a pleasure to attend ICIS as it is an ideal meeting to interact with people from many countries and to learn about new skills in oncology imaging and novel techniques. You always choose beautiful places for ICIS and we hope to come again next year to London for another wonderful meeting.

I would like to thank all the Faculty for the superb lectures delivered on the day and Dr Koh for an exceptionally well-organised meeting. The content, pace of lectures and the discussions were all extremely useful - my knowledge has improved significantly and I have no doubt my practice and reporting skills will further improve by using the material provided.
