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.

Medical Imaging News -- ScienceDaily

Fast MRIs offer alternative to CT scans for pediatric head injuries

Published: Wed, 18 Sep 2019 13:14:59 EDT

Researchers have released a study that shows that a new imaging method 'fast MRI' is effective in identifying traumatic brain injuries in children, and can avoid exposure to ionizing radiation and anesthesia.

3D virtual reality models help yield better surgical outcomes

Published: Wed, 18 Sep 2019 13:14:57 EDT

A new study has found that using three-dimensional virtual reality models to prepare for kidney tumor surgeries resulted in substantial improvements, including shorter operating times, less blood loss during surgery and a shorter stay in the hospital afterward.

Handheld device to diagnose skin cancer

Published: Tue, 17 Sep 2019 16:01:38 EDT

Using shortwave rays installed in cellphones and airport security scanners, researchers have developed a technique that detects skin lesions and determines whether they are cancerous or benign -- a technology that could ultimately be incorporated into a handheld device that could rapidly diagnose skin cancer without a scalpel in sight.

Novel approach to ultrasound raises possibility of new medical applications

Published: Tue, 17 Sep 2019 10:45:00 EDT

A new ultrasound technique provides a non-invasive way of assessing bone structure on the microscale. Researchers hope to fine-tune the technique for use in assessing osteoporosis risk and treatment.

Screening mammography could benefit men at high risk of breast cancer

Published: Tue, 17 Sep 2019 10:06:16 EDT

Selective mammography screening can provide potentially lifesaving early detection of breast cancer in men who are at high risk for the disease, according to a new landmark study.

Drinking tea improves brain health, study suggests

Published: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 10:09:45 EDT

A recent study revealed that regular tea drinkers have better organized brain regions compared to non-tea drinkers.

Advanced MRI brain scan may help predict stroke-related dementia

Published: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 08:00:04 EDT

An advanced MRI brain scan analysis in patients with stroke-damaged blood vessels helped predict problems with thinking (planning, organizing information and processing speed) and dementia.

Repetitive impacts key to understanding sports-associated concussions

Published: Mon, 09 Sep 2019 13:02:27 EDT

Scientists have made a significant advance in our understanding of mild head trauma (concussive brain injury) and how it may be managed and treated in the future. It seems that repetitive impacts -- as opposed to single events -- cause the all-important damage to blood vessels in the brain. These repetitive impacts can be visualized via an MRI signal.

One-atom switch supercharges fluorescent dyes

Published: Mon, 09 Sep 2019 12:12:40 EDT

A lab developed a single-atom switch to turn fluorescent dyes used in biological imaging on and off at will.

Lollies, vitamins and fish-shaped sauce containers hit the MRI mark

Published: Mon, 09 Sep 2019 09:50:15 EDT

A study has identified four common items that could be cheaper and equally effective alternatives to commercial markers for use in MRI scanning to pinpoint specific anatomical areas or pathologies being scanned.

Innovative technique for labeling and mapping inhibitory neurons reveals diverse tuning profile

Published: Thu, 05 Sep 2019 12:45:15 EDT

Researchers uncovered a diverse palette of inhibition within layer 2/3 of the visual cortex, suggestive of a more complex functional connectivity that may allow for enhanced flexibility of neuronal responses.

New MRI technique can 'see' molecular changes in brain

Published: Thu, 05 Sep 2019 09:40:46 EDT

Scientists have successfully transformed an MRI from a diagnostic camera into a device that can record changes in the biological makeup of brain tissue. The development will help doctors understand whether a patient is merely aging or developing a neurodegenerative disease, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.

Stretchable wireless sensor could monitor healing of cerebral aneurysms

Published: Wed, 28 Aug 2019 14:55:07 EDT

A wireless sensor small enough to be implanted in the blood vessels of the human brain could help clinicians evaluate the healing of aneurysms -- bulges that can cause death or serious injury if they burst. The stretchable sensor, which operates without batteries, would be wrapped around stents or diverters implanted to control blood flow in vessels affected by the aneurysms.

Prenatal pesticide exposure linked to changes in teen's brain activity

Published: Tue, 27 Aug 2019 12:36:26 EDT

Prenatal exposure to the organophosphate pesticides has been linked to poorer cognition and behavior problems in children. A new study is one of the first to use advanced brain imaging to reveal how exposure can actually change brain activity. Teenagers estimated to have higher levels of prenatal exposure to organophosphates showed altered brain activity compared to their peers while performing tasks that require executive control, the study found.

Gold nanoparticles shown to be safe and effective treatment for prostate cancer

Published: Tue, 27 Aug 2019 12:35:13 EDT

Bio-compatible gold nanoparticles designed to convert near-infrared light to heat have been shown to safely and effectively ablate low- to intermediate-grade tumors within the prostate, according to a new study.

Greater left ventricular mass increases risk of heart failure

Published: Tue, 27 Aug 2019 10:16:26 EDT

Elevated left ventricular mass, known as left-ventricular hypertrophy, is a stronger predictor of coronary artery disease-related death and heart failure than coronary artery calcium score, according to a new study.

Quest for new cancer treatment crosses milestone

Published: Mon, 26 Aug 2019 15:07:02 EDT

A cancer therapy has crossed a milestone in clinical trials, a major development in a decades-long quest to develop a treatment that destroys tumors without the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy, invasive surgery and radiation.

Dietary zinc protects against Streptococcus pneumoniae infection, study finds

Published: Thu, 22 Aug 2019 14:19:21 EDT

Researchers have uncovered a crucial link between dietary zinc intake and protection against Streptococcus pneumoniae, the primary bacterial cause of pneumonia.

Improved functional near infrared spectroscopy enables enhanced brain imaging

Published: Wed, 21 Aug 2019 13:52:46 EDT

Researchers demonstrate critical improvements to functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS)-based optical imaging in the brain.

Real-time fMRI treats Tourette Syndrome

Published: Wed, 21 Aug 2019 12:43:54 EDT

Characterized by repetitive movements or vocalizations known as tics, Tourette Syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder that plagues many adolescents. A study has now trained adolescents with Tourette Syndrome to control their tics through an imaging technique that allows patients to monitor the function of their own brain in real time.
