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.

Great case presentations, lovely venue. Hope ICIS is back in London soon…..

KM | London, 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!

Imaging reveals unexpected contractions in the human placenta

Published: Thu, 28 May 2020 16:05:41 EDT

High-resolution imaging of the human placenta provides new insights into blood circulation patterns that are crucial for fetal development, according to a new study. These findings improve our understanding of the functioning of this understudied organ, both in healthy pregnancies and in serious medical conditions such as pre-eclampsia.

New technique offers higher resolution molecular imaging and analysis

Published: Thu, 28 May 2020 09:46:24 EDT

A new approach could help researchers understand more complicated biomolecular interactions and characterize cells and diseases at the single-molecule level.

Clues to COVID-19 in the brain uncovered in new study

Published: Wed, 27 May 2020 10:50:49 EDT

A study reviewing neuroimaging and neurological symptoms in patients with COVID-19 may shed light on the virus's impact on the central nervous system.

Increased usability and precision in vascular imaging

Published: Tue, 26 May 2020 13:15:33 EDT

Researchers have developed a new X-ray contrast agent. The contrast agent is easier to use and distributes into all blood vessels more reliably, increasing the precision of vascular imaging. This reduces the number of animals required in research experiments.

New double-contrast technique picks up small tumors on MRI

Published: Mon, 25 May 2020 11:56:42 EDT

Early detection of tumors is extremely important in treating cancer. A new technique offers a significant advance in using magnetic resonance imaging to pick out even very small tumors from normal tissue.

Retinal texture could provide early biomarker of Alzheimer's disease

Published: Thu, 14 May 2020 16:42:54 EDT

Biomedical engineers have devised a new imaging device capable of measuring both the thickness and texture of the various layers of the retina. The advance could be used to detect a biomarker of Alzheimer's disease, potentially offering a widespread early warning system for the disease.

Unlocking the gate to the millisecond CT

Published: Thu, 14 May 2020 13:17:25 EDT

Researchers have developed a new multi-beam method for conducting CT scans that improve image quality whilst drastically cutting the required time to one millisecond.

Signs of fetal alcohol syndrome detected in womb

Published: Wed, 13 May 2020 17:11:28 EDT

New images reveal the earliest impairments to nonhuman primate fetal brain development due to alcohol ingested by the mother, in a study involving rhesus macaques. Magnetic resonance imaging showed impairments to brain growth during the third trimester of pregnancy, even though the fetus was exposed to alcohol only during the first trimester.

New imaging tool helps researchers see extent of Alzheimer's early damage

Published: Wed, 13 May 2020 08:18:14 EDT

New imaging technology allows scientists to see the widespread loss of brain synapses in early stages of Alzheimer's disease, a finding that one day may help aid in drug development, according to a new study.

AI techniques in medical imaging may lead to incorrect diagnoses

Published: Tue, 12 May 2020 13:45:41 EDT

Machine learning and AI are highly unstable in medical image reconstruction, and may lead to false positives and false negatives, a new study suggests.

Scientists show MRI predicts the efficacy of a stem cell therapy for brain injury

Published: Tue, 12 May 2020 13:45:08 EDT

Scientists have demonstrated the promise of applying magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to predict the efficacy of using human neural stem cells to treat a brain injury -- a first-ever 'biomarker' for regenerative medicine that could help personalize stem cell treatments for neurological disorders and improve efficacy.

Imaging reveals bowel abnormalities in patients with COVID-19

Published: Mon, 11 May 2020 14:21:48 EDT

Patients with COVID-19 can have bowel abnormalities, including ischemia, according to a new study.

Polymer composite could serve as lighter, non-toxic radiation shielding

Published: Mon, 11 May 2020 14:21:10 EDT

Pediatric coronavirus disease (COVID-19) X-ray, CT in review of new lung disorders

Published: Fri, 08 May 2020 18:45:57 EDT

Although the clinical symptoms of SARS, H1N1, MERS, EVALI, and COVID-19 may be nonspecific, some characteristic imaging findings are emerging, according to a new article. Careful evaluation of the distribution, lung zone preference, and symmetry of the abnormalities with an eye for a few unique differentiating imaging features can allow radiologists to offer a narrower differential diagnosis in pediatric patients, leading to optimal patient care.
