Our Journal 1

Cancer Imaging is the official journal of ICIS, 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. Cancer Imaging Impact factor for 2014 is 2.07 with a  5 year impact factor of 2.46.

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.

Watching a tumor grow in real-time

Published: Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:04:56 GMT

Researchers have gained new insight into the phases of breast cancer growth. The ability to visualize and characterize the composition of a tumor in detail during its development can provide valuable insights in order to target appropriate therapeutics.

Delay in treatment, missed diagnostic testing found among lung cancer patients

Published: Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:14:05 GMT

Patients undergoing surgery for lung cancer may wait too long to receive treatment, and too many patients skip vital diagnostic steps that are needed to help determine the best possible treatment, researchers report.

Real-time imaging of lung lesions during surgery helps localize tumors, improve precision

Published: Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:24:22 GMT

New molecular tools are emerging to identify lung adenocarcinomas during pulmonary resection. The results of a proof-of-concept study suggest that lung cancer fluorescent imaging during surgery using targeted molecular agents may soon be a reality. While the methodology still needs refinement, the technique holds the possibility of precise visualization of tumor margins, detection of other tumors or metastases, localization of small malignant ground glass opacities, and accurate identification of lymph nodes containing metastatic cancer cells.

Colonoscopies of the future: Adjustable-focus endoscope helps to reduce discomfort

Published: Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:19:13 GMT

An endoscopic probe that delivers adjustable-focus capabilities in a slimmer package has been developed by researchers. The findings could ultimately facilitate more effective and less painful imaging of internal tissues.

Imaging probe yields double insight

Published: Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:38:46 GMT

An organic dye that can light up cancer cells for two powerful imaging techniques providing complementary diagnostic information has been developed and successfully tested in mice, researchers report.

Identifying biomarkers key to early intervention in Alzheimer's disease

Published: Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:03:59 GMT

Researchers are looking for biomarkers that might serve as an early warning system for Alzheimer's disease. The process is not without complications, but these scientists possess a collective “Rosie the Riveter” spirit.

Brain disease scenarios revised by step-by-step imaging of toxic aggregation

Published: Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:17:23 GMT

Diseases like Alzheimer's are caused when proteins aggregate and clump together. In a world first, scientists have successfully distinguished between the disease-causing aggregation forms of proteins. The finding can help change pharmaceutical treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.

Specific cardiovascular risk factors may predict Alzheimer's disease

Published: Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:17:18 GMT

Specific cardiovascular risk factors, such as alcohol consumption, smoking, obesity and diabetes, are associated with smaller regional brain volumes that may be early indicators of Alzheimer's disease and dementia according to a study.

Narrowing in on pituitary tumors

Published: Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:37:31 GMT

A new technique that could help surgeons more precisely define the locations of pituitary tumors in near real-time has been demonstrated by a team of scientists. The new strategy uses a visualization technique (matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging -- MALDI MSI) that can analyze specific hormones, including growth hormone and prolactin, in tissue.

New analysis points way to earlier diagnosis of chest tumors

Published: Wed, 22 Jul 2015 20:42:33 GMT

Scientists found two previously overlooked clues in the health records of 131 children and teens with chest masses. Patients with enlarged lymph nodes in the neck and low levels of certain white blood cells were more likely to have cancer. Masses located in front of the heart were also more likely to be malignant, they report.
