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."

Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours

Fri 31 Oct 2014 Fri 31 Oct 2014 Society

Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours


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
