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.

Cancer Imaging Journal

Impact Factor 3.153

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.

A very well organised and highly educational course.  It was a pleasure to learn from experts in cancer imaging from around the world and have the opportunity to meet them.

New tech takes radiation out of cancer screening

Published: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 11:14:15 EST

Researchers have developed a new, inexpensive technology that could save lives and money by routinely screening women for breast cancer without exposure to radiation. The system uses harmless microwaves and artificial intelligence (AI) software to detect even small, early-stage tumors within minutes.

Directing nanoparticles straight to tumors

Published: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 11:13:32 EST

Modern anticancer therapies aim to attack tumor cells while sparing healthy tissue. A team of researchers has now produced tiny nanoparticles that are designed to specifically target cancer cells. They can navigate directly to the tumor cells and visualize those using advanced imaging techniques. Both in Petri dishes and animal models, the scientists were able to effectively guide the nanoparticles to the cancer cells. The next step is to combine the new technique with therapeutic approaches.

New tool for an old disease: Use of PET and CT scans may help develop shorter TB treatment

Published: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 08:28:04 EST

Experts believe that tuberculosis, or TB, has been a scourge for humans for some 15,000 years, with the first medical documentation of the disease coming out of India around 1000 B.C.E. Today, the World Health Organization reports that TB is still the leading cause of death worldwide from a single infectious agent, responsible for some 1.5 million fatalities annually.

Surgeons successfully treat brain aneurysms using a robot

Published: Fri, 21 Feb 2020 16:07:31 EST

A robot was used to treat brain aneurysms for the first time. The robotic system could eventually allow remote surgery, enabling surgeons to treat strokes from afar.

Iron in brain shows cognitive decline in people with Parkinson's

Published: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 19:34:47 EST

A cutting-edge MRI technique to detect iron deposits in different brain regions can track declines in thinking, memory and movement in people with Parkinson's disease, finds a new study.

Researchers develop label-free microscopic techniques to visualize extracellular vesicles

Published: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 18:27:52 EST

Medical researchers can now use label-free microscopic techniques to visualize extracellular vesicles, which are associated with cancer.

Therapeutic cooling effectively targets site of brain injury

Published: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 14:17:15 EST

Investigators successfully measure brain temperature in newborn babies undergoing therapeutic cooling, showing that the treatment effectively targets the core of the brain.

Lensless on-chip microscopy platform shows slides in full view

Published: Wed, 19 Feb 2020 11:37:42 EST

Biomedical engineers have demonstrated a lensless on-chip microscopy platform that eliminates several of the most common problems with conventional optical microscopy and provides a low-cost option for the diagnosis of disease.

First glimpse of body's 'steering wheel' joint sparks hope

Published: Tue, 18 Feb 2020 10:47:25 EST

For the first time, scientists have found a way to reveal the mechanics of the human body's 'steering wheel' -- the subtalar joint.

Brain inflammation in veterans with Gulf War illness

In a new discovery, researchers have detected widespread inflammation in the brains of veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Illness.

Hybrid microscope could bring digital biopsy to the clinic

Published: Thu, 13 Feb 2020 09:09:21 EST

By adding infrared capability to the ubiquitous, standard optical microscope, researchers hope to bring cancer diagnosis into the digital era. Pairing infrared measurements with high-resolution optical images and machine learning algorithms, the researchers created digital biopsies that closely correlated with traditional pathology techniques and also outperformed state-of-the-art infrared microscopes.

A new study suggests that significant early childhood exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) is associated with structural changes in the brain at the age of 12.

Hot flashes impair memory performance

Published: Thu, 23 Jan 2020 09:58:59 EST

If you're having difficulty identifying the right word to express yourself clearly or remembering a story correctly, you may blame menopause. A new study suggests that physiologic hot flashes are associated with decreased verbal memory and with alterations in brain function during encoding and retrieval of memory, especially in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex.

Low doses of radiation used in medical imaging lead to mutations in cell cultures

Published: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 14:17:31 EST

Common medical imaging procedures use low doses of radiation that are believed to be safe. A new study, however, finds that in human cell cultures, these doses create breaks that allow extra bits of DNA to integrate into the chromosome.

Peering into the genome of brain tumor

Published: Thu, 09 Jan 2020 10:08:23 EST

Scientists have created a machine learning method for classifying the mutations of glioma brain tumors based on MR images alone. Thus far, classification has only been possible by tissue sampling during surgery. The new method is noninvasive, may remove the need for a tissue sample and help accelerate delivery of treatment for patients.
