Our Journal - Cancer Imaging

Our Journal 1

We are pleased to announce that as from 1st January 2014 Cancer Imaging will be published by BioMed Central, thereby enhanced with the full benefits of open access.

Our Journal 1

Cancer Imaging is the official journal of ICIS, and is now an open access, peer-reviewed journal published by BioMed Central. Original articles, as well as reviews and editorials written by international imaging experts with a subspecialty focus on oncology, are published regularly online;  sign up for alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest articles.  Alongside the 2013 impact factor of 1.29, Cancer Imaging is pleased to announce the 5-year impact factor of 1.76, enhanced by a very favourable Immediacy Index score.  

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.

All articles published in Cancer Imaging are included in PubMed, the most widely used biomedical bibliographic database service, as well as Embase, EmCare, Google Scholar, MEDLINE, Science Citation Index and Scopus. The full text of all research articles is deposited in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature.

New technique provides novel approach to diagnosing ciliopathies

Published: Thu, 18 Dec 2014 17:08:42 GMT

It is difficult to diagnose, study and treat cioliopathies, because it is difficult to examine cilia in molecular detail. Now researchers report that they have captured the highest-resolution images of human cilia ever, using a new approach.

Lens-free microscope can detect cancer at cellular level

Published: Wed, 17 Dec 2014 20:40:31 GMT

A lens-free microscope that can be used to detect the presence of cancer or other cell-level abnormalities with the same accuracy as larger and more expensive optical microscopes, has been developed by researchers. The invention could lead to less expensive and more portable technology for performing common examinations of tissue, blood and other biomedical specimens. It may prove especially useful in remote areas and in cases where large numbers of samples need to be examined quickly.

Real-time radiation monitor can reduce radiation exposure for medical workers

Published: Tue, 16 Dec 2014 21:14:51 GMT

It’s a sound that saves. A “real-time” radiation monitor that alerts by beeping in response to radiation exposure during cardiac-catheterization procedures significantly reduces the amount of exposure that medical workers receive, researchers found.

First real-time mri-guided brain surgery for Parkinson's in southern California

Published: Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:39:54 GMT

Neurosurgeons became the first in Southern California to implant a deep brain stimulator (DBS) in a patient with Parkinson’s disease using real-time 3-D magnetic resonance image (MRI) guidance.

New technology advances eye tracking as biomarker for brain function, recovery from brain injury

Published: Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:05:31 GMT

A new technology has been developed that can assess the location and impact of a brain injury merely by tracking the eye movements of patients as they watch music videos for less than four minutes. The study suggests that the use of eye tracking technology may be a potential biological marker for assessing brain function and monitoring recovery for patients with brain injuries.

Diagnostic screening: Microwave imaging of the breast may be better and safer

Published: Tue, 16 Dec 2014 16:30:15 GMT

Although currently available diagnostic screening systems for breast are effective at detecting early signs of tumors, they are far from perfect, subjecting patients to ionizing radiation and sometimes inflicting discomfort on women who are undergoing screening because of the compression of the breast that is required to produce diagnostically useful images. New research suggests a better, cheaper, and safer way to look for the telltale signs of breast cancer may be with microwaves.

Decades-long sinusitis odyssey cured by otolaryngologist

Published: Mon, 15 Dec 2014 23:50:30 GMT

According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, more than 37 million Americans suffer at least one bout of acute sinusitis per year making it the most common medical ailment. Otolaryngology is the medical specialization of ear, nose and throat (ENT) conditions. The story of one woman's struggle with the illness ends with a cure after years of suffering.

Potential new tool for cervical cancer detection, diagnosis

Published: Mon, 15 Dec 2014 16:41:05 GMT

Cervical cancer is, in many ways, a shining example of how successful the war on cancer can be. Thanks largely to the advent of Pap smear screening, U.S. cervical cancer deaths decreased dramatically, by more than 60 percent, between 1955 and 1992. In the last two decades, better treatment outcomes and more powerful imaging techniques have steadily pushed 5-year survival rates ever higher. The latest weapons in modern medicine's arsenal are two new vaccines that were recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for preventing this type of cancer altogether.

Novel fMRI technique identifies HIV-associated cognitive decline before symptoms occur

Published: Wed, 10 Dec 2014 22:17:08 GMT

A five-minute functional MRI test can pick up neuronal dysfunction in HIV-positive individuals who don't yet exhibit cognitive decline, say neuroscientists and clinicians. The issue of neural dysfunction in the HIV-positive population is significant. "About half of people living with HIV are affected by HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders, or HAND, and we expect this condition will escalate as the current HIV-positive generation ages," says the study's senior investigator.

Why young people with diabetes develop heart damage

Published: Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:59:55 GMT

Magnetic resonance imaging has been used by researchers to reveal why young people with Type-2 diabetes develop heart damage. The study will randomly allocate patients to different treatment arms. The first group will receive optimal blood sugar lowering treatment and lifestyle advice. The second, a very low calorie diet and the third, moderate intensity exercise training. The research team hope that conducting MRI scans throughout this period will indicate whether early heart damage can be completely reversed.
