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.

A really enjoyable, informative and fun three days in a beautiful town.

KP | Royal Surrey Hospital, Guildford, UK

I would like to thank all the Faculty for the superb lectures delivered on the day and Dr Koh for an exceptionally well-organised meeting. The content, pace of lectures and the discussions were all extremely useful - my knowledge has improved significantly and I have no doubt my practice and reporting skills will further improve by using the material provided.

IM | Cambridge, UK

I am so very happy I came to ICIS this year, my first time.  Some of the talks were truly “life changing”.  I will gladly try to implement things I heard into my daily practice.  This conference showed me again what an exciting job I have and that here at ICIS I can acquire tools to truly make a difference.  Thank you!  Becoming a member of ICIS is a must!
