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 2016 is 2.404.

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.

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

Published: Thu, 13 Jul 2017 15:50:29 EDT

A fast and practical molecular-scale imaging technique has been developed that could let scientists view never-before-seen dynamics of biological processes involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis.

Metal-free MRI contrast agent could be safer for some patients

Published: Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:56:14 EDT

A metal-free MRI contrast agent has been developed that could be safer for certain patients. The compound contains organic molecules called nitroxides instead of metal and may be used to generate more informative MRI scans of tumors.

Detecting long-term concussion in athletes

Published: Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:56:11 EDT

Lawyers representing both sides in concussion lawsuits against sports leagues may eventually have a new tool at their disposal: a diagnostic signature that uses artificial intelligence to detect brain trauma years after it has occurred.

Visual system changes that may signal parkinson's disease

Published: Tue, 11 Jul 2017 08:55:17 EDT

Changes in the visual systems of newly diagnosed Parkinson's disease patients may provide important biomarkers for the early detection and monitoring of the disease, according to a new study.

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.
