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.

We’ve have an excellent time at Glasgow ICIS meeting!!

We particularly enjoyed “hands-on workshops” and “Cases I would like to read again”

We are happy with our prize!!

How artificial intelligence can be used to more quickly and accurately diagnose breast cancer

Published: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 15:19:28 EDT

Breast ultrasound elastography is an emerging imaging technique used by doctors to help diagnose breast cancer by evaluating a lesion's stiffness in a non-invasive way. Researchers identified the critical role machine learning can play in making this technique more efficient and accurate in diagnosis.

Arthroscopy more effective than MRI for chondral defects of the knee

Published: Thu, 11 Jul 2019 15:17:10 EDT

Using arthroscopy to stage a lesion in the chondral area of the knee is more accurate than magnetic resonance imaging, according to researchers.

Light touch to improve rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 20:18:31 EDT

A new way of detecting rheumatoid arthritis using infrared light could offer an objective way of diagnosing the disease and monitoring treatment effectiveness, a new study shows.

New probe could help surgeons more accurately remove tumours

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 17:24:27 EDT

A new study has the potential to help surgeons more accurately remove tumors and detect cancer in lymph nodes during surgery.

Gadolinium deposition occurs in early MS

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 17:24:10 EDT

A commonly used imaging linear contrast agent, gadodiamide, does accumulate in the brain early in MS but there is no discernible clinical impact.

On the way to nanotheranostics: Diagnosing and treating diseases simultaneously

Published: Mon, 08 Jul 2019 13:12:03 EDT

Nanotheranostics is a cutting-edge field of medicine that uses nanoparticles to simultaneously diagnose and treat diseases. Chemical engineers have now developed a novel nanotheranostic system that uses tunable light to activate or image nanoparticles, thus opening a new path for the field.

Brain imaging may help identify teens at risk of increasing alcohol use

Published: Tue, 02 Jul 2019 11:28:19 EDT

Teenagers with large amounts of grey matter in the brain at age 14 are more likely to increase their alcohol use over the next five years, according to a whole brain imaging study.

World's smallest MRI performed on single atoms

Published: Mon, 01 Jul 2019 14:45:19 EDT

Researchers have made a major scientific breakthrough by performing the world's smallest magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). They used their new technique to visualize the magnetic field of single atoms.

Low-cost retinal scanner could help prevent blindness worldwide

Published: Fri, 28 Jun 2019 15:35:01 EDT

Biomedical engineers have developed a low-cost, portable optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanner that promises to bring the vision-saving technology to underserved regions throughout the United States and abroad. Thanks to a redesigned, 3D-printed spectrometer, the scanner is 15 times lighter and smaller than current commercial systems and is made from parts costing less than a tenth the retail price of commercial systems -- all without sacrificing imaging quality.

Mini 'magic' MRI scanner could diagnose knee injuries more accurately

Published: Fri, 28 Jun 2019 12:05:17 EDT

Researchers have developed a prototype mini MRI scanner that fits around a patient's leg.

Sometimes, a non-invasive procedure will suffice

Published: Tue, 25 Jun 2019 18:19:43 EDT

When a patient complains about chest pain, diagnosis will usually involve catheter angiography to evaluate the adequacy of blood supply to the heart. Researchers have now established that, in certain cases, the diagnostic reliability of non-invasive coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography is as good as that of coronary angiography - thereby dispensing with the need for invasive procedures.

Interim scan during prostate cancer therapy helps guide treatment

Published: Mon, 24 Jun 2019 16:11:53 EDT

New prostate cancer research shows that adding an interim scan during therapy can help guide a patient's treatment. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer after two cycles of lutetium-177 (177Lu)-PSMA radioligand therapy has shown a significant predictive value for patient survival.

Non-invasive view into the heart

Published: Mon, 24 Jun 2019 11:14:52 EDT

The non-invasive measurement of blood flow to the heart using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is on par with cardiac catheterization.

Scientists discover new method for developing tracers used for medical imaging

Published: Thu, 20 Jun 2019 15:35:05 EDT

A miniature robot that could check colons for early signs of disease

Published: Wed, 19 Jun 2019 14:25:23 EDT

Engineers have shown it is technically possible to guide a tiny robotic capsule inside the colon to take micro-ultrasound images. Known as a Sonopill, the device could one day replace the need for patients to undergo an endoscopic examination, where a semi-rigid scope is passed into the bowel - an invasive procedure that can be painful.

Antidepressants can reduce empathy for those in pain

Published: Tue, 18 Jun 2019 10:37:18 EDT

Depression is a disorder that often comes along with strong impairments of social functioning. Until recently, researchers assumed that acute episodes of depression also impair empathy, an essential skill for successful social interactions and understanding others. Novel insights show that antidepressant treatment can lead to impaired empathy regarding perception of pain, and not just the state of depression itself.

New imaging modality targets cholesterol in arterial plaque

Published: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 12:37:11 EDT

Researchers demonstrate a new imaging modality that successfully identifies the presence of cholesterol in the arterial plaque.

Increase in resolution, scale takes CT scanning and diagnosis to the next level

Published: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 10:31:38 EDT

Researchers have developed a new, 3D tissue imaging technique, called X-ray histotomography. The technique allows researchers to study the details of cells in a zebrafish tissue sample without having to cut it into slices.
