ICIS 2019 - Sponsored Delegate Opportunity
25 April 2019

ICIS 2019 - Sponsored Delegate Opportunity

The International Cancer Imaging Society regularly attracts delegates from over 35 countries to it's annual teaching course. As a registered charity, we would like to ensure we have delegates in attendance from some of the world's least developed and developing countries, where funding travel to Italy and ICIS registration fees may not be possible.

Please help us spread the word by sharing this information with international radiologists who you think may be able to benefit from this opportunity.

The ICIS Secretariat invites any individual from any country categorised by the World Bank as 'low income' or 'lower middle income', to apply to be a sponsored delegate at ICIS 2019. The list can be found here

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 3.016

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.

I attended the ICIS Conference for the first time 2 years ago in Germany, I was impressed by the high quality presentations and posters, excellent organization of the conference and great venue. Speaking of venues, hard to beat last year’s conference held at The British Museum! The workshops were a great additional learning opportunity, where I could hear from the best experts in the world about their way of thinking and interpretation of cancer imaging. It was like opening the doors into the different radiology departments across the world and seeing what was happening there. It felt natural, as everybody was very open and positive, creating a less formal atmosphere than you would expect from such a high level conference. I also absolutely loved the social gathering during and after the conferences with the opportunity to relax, network, get the awards, say “good bye” to new friends and colleagues and plan the next presentation at the next conference. I’m looking forward to coming back again.

Air pollution linked to childhood anxiety

Published: Tue, 21 May 2019 16:24:21 EDT

A new study looks at the correlation between exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) and childhood anxiety, by looking at the altered neurochemistry in pre-adolescents.

Shedding light on cancer metabolism in real-time with bioluminescence

Published: Mon, 20 May 2019 17:16:28 EDT

Cancerous tumors can be made to bioluminesce, like fireflies, according to the level of their glucose uptake, giving rise to a technique for quantifying metabolite absorption. The firefly imaging technique for sugar can be translated from cancer to many other metabolic diseases.

Scientists succeed in testing potential brain-based method to diagnose autism

Published: Mon, 20 May 2019 12:57:56 EDT

Scientists have taken the first step in developing an objective, brain-based test to diagnose autism.

Thinking outside the box: 'Seeing' clearer and deeper into live organs

Published: Mon, 20 May 2019 11:56:51 EDT

Scientists using a unique approach have developed a new biomedical imaging contrast agent. They say the breakthrough overcomes a major challenge to 'seeing' deeper into live tissue, and opens the way for significant improvements in optical imaging technology.

A new way of diagnosing and treating disease -- without cutting skin

Published: Wed, 15 May 2019 14:40:20 EDT

Researchers have developed a specialized microscope that has the potential ability to both diagnose diseases that include skin cancer and perform incredibly precise surgery -- all without cutting skin.

Memories are strengthened via brainwaves produced during sleep, new study shows

Published: Wed, 15 May 2019 13:17:50 EDT

New research brings us closer to understanding how learned information turns into reliable memories during sleep.

What are the neurological side effects of CAR T-cell therapy?

Published: Wed, 15 May 2019 13:02:54 EDT

A team recently cataloged the neurological symptoms of patients who had received CAR T-cell therapy to better understand its neurotoxic side effects. While neurological symptoms were prevalent -- 77 percent of patients experienced at least one symptom -- they were also temporary.

Artificial intelligence could select heart failure patients for expensive treatment

Specific identification of chronic lung disease in premature babies

Published: Thu, 09 May 2019 09:27:18 EDT

Infants born prematurely frequently develop a form of chronic lung disease known as Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia. Previously, this disease could only be diagnosed clinically and with a low degree of differentiation. Researchers have now successfully developed a new protocol for identifying neonatal patients with the disease by the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

A step toward better understanding brain anatomy of autism spectrum disorder

Cause of sepsis-induced lung injury

Published: Tue, 07 May 2019 11:04:39 EDT

A KAIST research team succeeded in visualizing pulmonary microcirculation and circulating cells in vivo with a custom-built 3D intravital lung microscopic imaging system. They found a type of leukocyte called neutrophils aggregate inside the capillaries during sepsis-induced acute lung injury (ALI), leading to disturbances and dead space in blood microcirculation. According to the researchers, this phenomenon is responsible for tissue hypoxia causing lung damage in the sepsis model, and mitigating neutrophils improves microcirculation as well as hypoxia.

Image-based computer model reveals finer details of tumor blood flow

Published: Mon, 06 May 2019 10:07:06 EDT

Researchers have developed an image-based computer model of tumor behavior that captures more of the complexity of cancer growth.
