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.

Detecting cancer earlier is goal of new medical imaging technology

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 15:14:03 GMT

A new medical imaging method could help physicians detect cancer and other diseases earlier than before, speeding treatment and reducing the need for invasive, time-consuming biopsies. The potentially lifesaving technique uses nanotechnology and shortwave infrared light to reveal small cancerous tumors and cardiovascular lesions deep inside the body.

Exploring x-ray phase tomography with synchrotron radiation

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 15:12:31 GMT

X-ray phase tomography is an imaging technique that uses penetrating X-rays to create volumetric views through "slices" or sections of soft biological tissues, such as tumors, and it offers strongly enhanced contrast compared to conventional CT scans. Yet scientists still do not know which X-ray phase tomography methods are best suited to yield optimized results for a wide variety of conditions.

See-through sensors open new window into the brain

Published: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 01:23:45 GMT

Developing invisible implantable medical sensor arrays, a team of engineers has overcome a major technological hurdle in researchers’ efforts to understand the brain. The team has now described its technology, which has applications in fields ranging from neuroscience to cardiac care and even contact lenses.

See-through, one-atom-thick, carbon electrodes powerful tool to study brain disorders

Published: Mon, 20 Oct 2014 18:15:37 GMT

A graphene, one-atom-thick microelectrode now solves a major problem for investigators looking at brain circuitry. Pinning down the details of how individual neural circuits operate in epilepsy and other brain disorders requires real-time observation of their locations, firing patterns, and other factors.

Pathological gambling is associated with altered opioid system in the brain

Published: Sun, 19 Oct 2014 00:54:07 GMT

All humans have a natural opioid system in the brain. Now new research has found that the opioid system of pathological gamblers responds differently to those of normal healthy volunteers.

Smartphone approach for examining progression of diabetic eye disease offers comparable results to traditional method

Published: Sat, 18 Oct 2014 16:26:48 GMT

A smartphone-based tool may be an effective alternative to traditional ophthalmic imaging equipment in evaluating and grading severity of a diabetic eye disease, according to a study. The results of the research indicate the lower-cost method could be useful for bringing the service to patients in isolated or underserved communities.

iPhones for eye health: Capturing ocular images in difficult-to-photograph patients

Published: Sat, 18 Oct 2014 16:26:46 GMT

Smartphone technology is a widely available resource which may also be a portable and effective tool for imaging the inside of the eye, according to results of a study. Researchers are successfully using an iPhone® application as an inexpensive, portable and effective tool for imaging the inside of the eye, including in patients who are challenging to photograph by traditional methods.

Giving physicians immunity from malpractice claims does not reduce 'defensive medicine'

Published: Wed, 15 Oct 2014 23:08:24 GMT

Conventional wisdom says that a lot of medical care in the United States is 'defensive medicine' prescribed because doctors want to protect themselves from the risk of malpractice lawsuits. But a new study that examines three states where emergency room doctors were given immunity from malpractice claims finds that such protections do little to reduce the cost of medical care.

Teenage baseball pitchers at risk for permanent shoulder injury

Published: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 12:51:28 GMT

Young baseball pitchers who throw more than 100 pitches per week are at risk for a newly identified overuse injury that can impede normal shoulder development and lead to additional problems, including rotator cuff tears, according to a new study.

New technique enables increasingly accurate PET scan to detect cancer, heart conditions

Published: Fri, 10 Oct 2014 12:38:51 GMT

A novel technique that reduces image degradation caused by respiratory motion during a PET scan was developed through a recent study. PET scanning is routinely used to detect cancer and heart conditions. The new technique is based on bioimpedance measurement and it allows for image reconstruction at a specific phase of the patient's breathing pattern. This, in turn, makes it possible to reduce image degradation caused by motion.
