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 it will run again in Paris on 3rd July 2014. This course is now sold out, but please register your interest for this and other courses in the series using the facility in the right hand panel.  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."
 

 

Next Society meeting

Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours

Fri 31 Oct 2014 Fri 31 Oct 2014 Society

Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours

London

ICIS Interactive - Masterclass in Imaging of Pancreatic Tumours

A stimulating and engaging learning experience

This highly commended one-day teaching course will be limited to 36 participants, each with their own imaging workstation and content delivered through lectures and hands-on case-based learning.

Each ICIS interactive course is designed to provide the best educational experience, achieved through:

  • An expert international faculty drawn from the ICIS Fellowship and other invited speakers
  • Mentored review of 35-40 cases on workstations, each case chosen with specific learning points
  • A workbook to reinforce learning

The course will highlight current imaging techniques, image interpretation, and pitfalls in the evaluation of solid and cystic pancreatic tumours.

What participants have said about the ICIS Interactive pancreatic workshop -

'Truly the most useful teaching/learning I have been to for years. The cases preloaded on the workstations keep you on your toes and well-placed case review that is fully interactive makes for an intense but really useful learning experience' - Dr. Miranda Harvie

'Fantastic day, best imaging course I have ever attended' - Dr. Paul Burn

'Hard to improve on - excellent!' - Dr. Zaid Viney

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.

Tumor segmentation software receives 510k clearance from FDA

Published: Thu, 09 Oct 2014 18:15:00 GMT

New imaging software that facilitates 3-D lung tumor segmentation has been incorporated into the Smart Segmentation® module of Varian’s Eclipse™ treatment planning system and has received FDA 510k clearance.

All that glitters is ... slimy? Gold nanoparticles measure stickiness of mucus in airways

Published: Thu, 09 Oct 2014 15:27:50 GMT

Researchers have developed a way to use gold nanoparticles and light to measure the stickiness of mucus in the airways. Their research could help doctors better monitor and treat lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
