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.

In landmark study of cell therapy for heart attack, more cells make a difference

Published: Fri, 21 Nov 2014 19:12:22 GMT

Physicians from 60 sites treated 161 heart attack patients with their own bone marrow cells, selected for their healing potential and then reinjected into the heart, in an effort to improve the heart's recovery. Their conclusion? Patients who receive more cells get significant benefits.

Fluorescent nanoprobe could become a universal, noninvasive method to identify and monitor tumors

Published: Fri, 21 Nov 2014 17:11:39 GMT

Researchers have developed a hybrid metal-polymer nanoparticle that lights up in the acidic environment surrounding tumor cells. Nonspecific probes that can identify any kind of tumor are extremely useful for monitoring the location and spread of cancer and the effects of treatment, as well as aiding initial diagnosis.

Pain, magnet displacement in MRI in patients with cochlear implants

Published: Thu, 20 Nov 2014 23:36:00 GMT

Pain, discomfort and magnet displacement were documented in a small medical records review study of patients with cochlear implants who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), according to a new report.

Two sensors in one: Nanoparticles that enable both MRI and fluorescent imaging could monitor cancer, other diseases

Published: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 17:56:00 GMT

Chemists have developed new nanoparticles that can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging and fluorescent imaging in animals. Such particles could help scientists to track specific molecules produced in the body, monitor a tumor's environment, or determine whether drugs have successfully reached their targets.

Heart muscle inflammation, swelling peak twice after heart attack

Published: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 14:13:49 GMT

Results of a new study challenge the current consensus in cardiology that peak myocardial edema, or heart muscle swelling, only occurs just after a myocardial infarction, or heart attack.

US radiology departments prepare for Ebola

Published: Tue, 18 Nov 2014 12:29:38 GMT

Radiologists have issued a special report on radiology preparedness for handling cases of Ebola virus. Healthcare administrators are placing a major emphasis on Ebola preparedness training at medical facilities throughout the U.S. Failure to have proper procedures in place to diagnose and treat patients with Ebola virus was cited as a major reason for infection of medical personnel in Dallas.

Fat around heart may cause irregular heartbeat

Published: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 21:26:18 GMT

The layer of fat that surrounds the heart may be a better predictor of atrial fibrillation than body mass index, the most common measure of obesity, a study has found. Obesity is commonly measured as a person’s body mass index (BMI). But a new study has found that the layer of fat around the outside of the heart is more closely associated with atrial fibrillation than BMI.

New insights link Fragile X Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders

Published: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 17:58:42 GMT

Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is the most common cause of inherited intellectual disability (ID), as well as the most frequent monogenic cause of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). FXS is caused by the absence or incorrect production of the protein FMRP. Scientists have now pinpointed a novel role that FMRP plays during the embryonic development of the brain cortex.

Routine imaging screening of diabetic patients for heart disease is not effective

Published: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 17:55:57 GMT

Routine heart imaging screenings for people with diabetes at high risk to experience a cardiac event, but who have no symptoms of heart disease, does not help them avoid heart attacks, hospitalization for unstable angina or cardiac death, according to a major new study.

New imaging technique identifies receptors for targeted cancer therapy

Published: Fri, 14 Nov 2014 17:49:17 GMT

A fluorescence imaging technique has been developed that can more accurately identify receptors for targeted cancer therapies without a tissue biopsy. "Accurately determining the population of protein receptors in a tumor available for targeting by molecular therapies or diagnostic imaging agents can greatly impact oncology patient outcomes," said one investigator. "Our in vivo receptor concentration imaging technique is a novel approach for fluorescence imaging that can potentially impact clinical assessment of tumor status and malignant tissue classification."
