Cancer Imaging Journal

Cancer Imaging is the official journal of ICIS, it is an open access, peer-reviewed journal with original articles as well as reviews and editorials.  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.

About ICIS

The International Cancer Imaging Society exists to meet the important challenges of advancing imaging in the multidisciplinary management of cancer.

We promote education in oncological imaging and stimulate research in the study of human tumour behaviour, bringing together radiologists with an interest in oncological imaging for the exchange of ideas, and to organise scientific meetings, multicentre research studies and postgraduate courses within the field.

How I Read Cancer Imaging Studies: The Master Class Series
12 April 2016

How I Read Cancer Imaging Studies: The Master Class Series

Join us for an online discussion in the members’ forum

In contrast to the literature regarding the outcomes of imaging, the methods that underpin the generation of a report and how to communicate the findings cogently to referring clinicians, remains something of a “black box”. In an insightful thematic series of articles that recently published in Cancer Imaging, experts in various modalities detail their approach to reporting scans in particular disease settings. 

In his introductory editorial, Prof. Rodney Hicks details the motivation for his "Master Class Series" and his own approach to reporting. This is a unique opportunity to break into data traditionally locked into the brains of experts and only intermittently shared with their own direct trainees, or alternatively, at often expensive masterclass presentations.

As a Radiologist who focuses on Cancer Imaging, I find ICIS courses and meetings extremely useful and stimulating. Not only do I get to meet the doyens in the field, the courses and meetings are so rich in state of art technology and new developments in the field of cancer imaging. There is no other imaging conference, that gives me so much value for the time.
