I attended the ICIS Conference for the first time 2 years ago in Germany, I was impressed by the high quality presentations and posters, excellent organization of the conference and great venue. Speaking of venues, hard to beat last year’s conference held at The British Museum! The workshops were a great additional learning opportunity, where I could hear from the best experts in the world about their way of thinking and interpretation of cancer imaging. It was like opening the doors into the different radiology departments across the world and seeing what was happening there. It felt natural, as everybody was very open and positive, creating a less formal atmosphere than you would expect from such a high level conference. I also absolutely loved the social gathering during and after the conferences with the opportunity to relax, network, get the awards, say “good bye” to new friends and colleagues and plan the next presentation at the next conference. I’m looking forward to coming back again.

Imaging of scar tissue formation

Published: Wed, 19 Jul 2017 17:37:10 EDT

Organs respond to injuries with the formation of new fibrous tissue, which can result in scarring. This process called fibrogenesis can now be monitored noninvasively on a molecular level, as scientists report. They have created a new gadolinium-based probe for magnetic resonance imaging that specifically reports the proteins involved in fibrogenesis. The imaging method may provide a quantitative assessment of the formation of the potentially harmful scar tissue.

Combining CAR T cells with existing immunotherapies may overcome resistance in glioblastomas

Published: Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:45:48 EDT

Genetically modified “hunter” T cells successfully migrated to and penetrated a deadly type of brain tumor known as glioblastoma (GBM) in a clinical trial of the new therapy, but the cells triggered an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment and faced a complex mutational landscape that will need to be overcome to better treat this aggressive cancer, researchers report.

New harmless radiopaque glue to seal bleeding and guide surgery

Published: Wed, 19 Jul 2017 08:47:38 EDT

First nanoparticle-based adhesive with imaging contrast effect in CT and ultrasound was successfully tested in animals and showed less toxicity than the FDA-approved glue CA-Lp.

Epilepsy biomarkers pave way for noninvasive diagnosis, better treatments

Published: Tue, 18 Jul 2017 08:55:04 EDT

A unique metabolic signature associated with epileptic brain tissue that causes seizures has been identified by researchers. It will allow physicians to precisely identify small regions of abnormal brain tissue in early-stage epilepsy patients that can’t be detected today using current technology, they say.

New device detects tumor cells in blood

Published: Mon, 17 Jul 2017 10:04:56 EDT

Researchers have patented a portable device that can detect tumor cells in blood. The device counts the number of tumor cells in a blood sample and is a highly effective tool for improving the monitoring, treatment and diagnosis of cancer.

New imaging technique able to watch molecular dynamics of neurodegenerative diseases

Aphasia recovery via speech therapy related to structural plasticity of the ventral stream

Published: Mon, 10 Jul 2017 17:19:37 EDT

Strengthening the inferior longitudinal fasciculus (ILF) via speech therapy is associated with significant semantic error reductions in aphasic stroke patients, report investigators. These findings suggest that speech recovery is related to the structural plasticity of the residual language network, that semantic skills are integrated by the ILF and that strengthening the ILF is possible with therapy.
