International Cancer Imaging Society

Welcome !

Message from the President

"Welcome to the International Cancer Imaging Society (ICIS), a professional body established to promote education and stimulate research in oncological imaging. ICIS promotes the exchange of ideas among radiologists and other physicians who specialize in cancer imaging. We hold our annual meetings at various locations in Europe, and satellite meetings are periodically conducted abroad in conjunction with national societies; past venues have included Hong Kong, South Africa, Kuwait, Hungary, Brazil and in October 2013, Korea. In February 2013 we held our inaugural one day, personalised, interactive teaching course in London, Masterclass in Imaging of Gynaecological Cancers. This was a great success, we held a repeat in September 2013 and the course is now being held in Paris on 3rd July 2014. Registration is open, places are limited so use the button in the right hand panel to register now! In addition the ICIS Interactive series has been developed to include a Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours, held for the first time in London in February 2014; we are planning to repeat this course later in 2014 - watch the website for further details!

The 14th ICIS Annual Teaching Course will be held in Heidelberg, Germany from October 9 to 11, 2014. Entitled "Working Together for the Patient", the meeting will be in association with the European Society of Oncologic Imaging (ESOI) and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) - do join us if you can!

I invite you to JOIN ICIS and become a Society member. You will benefit from reduced registration fees at all ICIS meetings, receive e-newsletters to keep you informed of Society news and highlighting recently published articles in our official journal CANCER IMAGING. Your membership and participation in the Society will help to further invigorate this exciting field of clinical practice and research."
