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.

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.

A very well organised and highly educational course.  It was a pleasure to learn from experts in cancer imaging from around the world and have the opportunity to meet them.

Medical Imaging News -- ScienceDaily

Clinically-validated 3-D printed stethoscope

Published: Wed, 14 Mar 2018 14:49:54 EDT

A team of researchers have developed an open-source, clinically validated template for a 3-D printed stethoscope for use in areas of the world with limited access to medical supplies -- places where a stethoscope could mean the difference between life and death.

Bone marrow edema in lower spine is common in young athletes

Published: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 13:06:49 EDT

New research indicates that young recreational and elite athletes commonly accumulate excess fluid in the bone marrow around the joint that connects the spine with the pelvis.

Sleep apnea study finds male-female differences in cerebral cortex thickness, symptoms

Published: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 09:30:00 EDT

Researchers examined clinical records and magnetic resonance imaging brain scans of patients who were recently diagnosed with sleep apnea, and discovered several apparent connections between thinning of the brain's cerebral cortex and apnea symptoms.

Technique developed to improve appendicitis care for pediatric patients

Published: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 08:42:13 EDT

Researchers have developed a new pediatric appendicitis risk calculator (pARC) to aid in the diagnosis of appendicitis.

'Digistain' technology offers revolution in detailed cancer diagnosis

Published: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 08:42:08 EDT

New cutting edge technology can be used to grade cancer tumors, eradicating human subjectivity and ensuring patients get the right treatment, researchers say.

A revolutionary technique allows to image all the cells in a region of the brain

Published: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 13:30:14 EDT

Physicists and biologists working on research into brain cells have come up with a new, revolutionary microscopy technique which for the first time allows images to be obtained of all the cells within a specified area of living brain tissue.

Brown adipose tissue made transparent

Published: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 10:40:33 EDT

Brown adipose tissue has played a key role in prevention research since its presence was first documented in adults. However, there was no non-invasive method of measuring its heat generation. A team has now succeeded in making the activity of brown adipose tissue visible without injecting substances.

Calcium testing in coronary arteries better way to predict heart attacks than stress testing alone

Published: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 10:40:22 EDT

Researchers have found that incorporating underused, but available, imaging technologies more precisely predicts who's at risk for heart attacks and similar threats -- in time to prevent them.

PET myocardial perfusion imaging more effective than SPECT scans in detecting coronary disease

Published: Sat, 10 Mar 2018 16:58:32 EST

Patients who receive cardiac positron emission testing (PET) imaging instead of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scan experienced a significant increase in the detection of severe obstructive coronary artery disease.

Why the world looks stable while we move

Published: Fri, 09 Mar 2018 10:06:49 EST

Neuroscientists investigate the interaction of visual perception and head movements with functional magnetic resonance imaging.

Menopausal hormone therapy linked to having a healthier heart

Published: Thu, 08 Mar 2018 14:30:58 EST

Women who use menopausal hormone therapy appear to have a heart structure and function that is linked to a lower risk of heart failure, according to a new study.

Molecular imaging strategy for determining molecular classifications of NSCLC

Published: Wed, 07 Mar 2018 14:14:19 EST

Recent findings suggest a novel positron emission tomography (PET) imaging approach determining epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation status for improved lung cancer patient management.

High-resolution brain imaging provides clues about memory loss in older adults

Published: Wed, 07 Mar 2018 13:20:05 EST

As we get older, it's not uncommon to experience 'senior moments,' in which we forget where we parked our car or call our children by the wrong names. And we may wonder: Are these memory lapses a normal part of aging, or do they signal the early stages of a severe disorder such as Alzheimer's disease? Currently, there's no good way to tell.

Clearer vision of what's inside a tumor and what's going on in there

Published: Tue, 06 Mar 2018 09:33:00 EST

Researchers have succeeded in combining tumor data from imaging methods and high-throughput technologies with high precision. The goal is to make metabolic processes in tumors visible in their entirety and thus to better understand them.

Novel PET imaging agent targets copper in tumors, detects prostate cancer recurrence early

Published: Mon, 05 Mar 2018 13:04:10 EST

A new study demonstrates that a novel nuclear medicine imaging agent targeting copper accumulation in tumors can detect prostate cancer recurrence early in patients with biochemical relapse (rising prostate-specific antigen [PSA] level).

New approach uses single PET scan to personalize cancer treatment

Published: Thu, 01 Mar 2018 10:37:09 EST

Researchers have developed a same-day, noninvasive PET-based imaging approach to assess PD-L1 positive tumors, which could help guide cancer treatment decisions and assess treatment response.

Seeing nanoscale details in mammalian cells

Scientists peer inside mammalian cells, producing intricately detailed, 3-D images of the tiny structures within and tracking molecules' subtle movements.

Brain mechanisms that give The Iceman unusual resistance to cold

Published: Wed, 28 Feb 2018 16:49:34 EST

Dutch adventurer Wim Hof is known as 'The Iceman' for good reason. Hof established several world records for prolonged resistance to cold exposure, an ability he attributes to a self-developed set of techniques of breathing and meditation -- known as the Wim Hof Method. Yet, how his brain responds during cold exposure and what brain mechanisms may endow him with this resistance have not been studied -- until now.

Scientists link genes to brain anatomy in autism

Published: Tue, 27 Feb 2018 11:55:45 EST

A team of scientists has discovered that specific genes are linked to individual differences in brain anatomy in autistic children.

Imaging plays key role in evaluating injuries at Olympics

Published: Mon, 26 Feb 2018 08:58:07 EST

The Olympic Games give elite athletes a chance at athletic triumph, but also carry a risk of injury. When injuries occur, it is critical that they be evaluated quickly. Onsite imaging services play an important role in the management of Olympic athletes with sports-related injuries and disorders, according to a new study.
