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

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.

A fantastic course covering a broad spectrum of topics related to oncologic imaging.  Up to date and relevant subject matter.  Great interactive sessions.  Well organised. I recommend the course for radiology trainees and consultants.
