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.

I would like to thank all the Faculty for the superb lectures delivered on the day and Dr Koh for an exceptionally well-organised meeting. The content, pace of lectures and the discussions were all extremely useful - my knowledge has improved significantly and I have no doubt my practice and reporting skills will further improve by using the material provided.

Experts review evidence yoga is good for the brain

Published: Thu, 12 Dec 2019 10:58:51 EST

Scientists have known for decades that aerobic exercise strengthens the brain and contributes to the growth of new neurons, but few studies have examined how yoga affects the brain. A review of the science finds evidence that yoga enhances many of the same brain structures and functions that benefit from aerobic exercise.

New technique to determine protein structures may solve biomedical puzzles

Published: Wed, 11 Dec 2019 14:56:13 EST

Researchers have now demonstrated a powerful 'experimental evolution' method to discover details of protein shape and function, and the method may find uses across a very broad spectrum of biomedical research.

A window into the hidden world of colons

Published: Wed, 11 Dec 2019 08:27:05 EST

Biomedical engineers have developed a system for real-time observations at the cellular level in the colon of a living mouse. It employs a magnetic system to stabilize the colon during imaging while otherwise allowing the gut to move and function normally. Researchers expect the procedure to allow new investigations into the digestive system's microbiome as well as the causes of diseases and their treatments.

Imaging of conjunctival goblet cells helps diagnosis of dry eyes

Published: Thu, 05 Dec 2019 11:31:53 EST

Researchers have developed a biometric imaging of conjunctival goblet cells with high definition.

Cellular repair response to treadmill test can predict cardiac outcomes

Published: Wed, 04 Dec 2019 15:27:00 EST

The information gained from the changes in CPC counts during exercise may be more useful to cardiologists in risk stratifying these patients than the treadmill exercise test itself, the researchers say.

Successful instrument guidance through deep and convoluted blood vessel networks

Published: Tue, 03 Dec 2019 14:33:11 EST

Researchers have developed a novel approach to tackling one of the biggest challenges of endovascular surgery: how to reach the most difficult-to-access physiological locations. Their solution is a robotic platform that uses the fringe field generated by the superconducting magnet of a clinical MRI scanner to guide medical instruments through deeper and more complex vascular structures. The approach has been successfully demonstrated in-vivo.

Novel MRI-guided ultrasound treatment destroys prostate cancer

Published: Mon, 02 Dec 2019 08:16:38 EST

A novel MRI-guided procedure that uses therapeutic ultrasound effectively treats prostate cancer with minimal side effects, according to a new study. Researchers said the incision-free technique could also be used to treat benign enlargement of the prostate gland.

Imaging uncovers secrets of medicine's mysterious ivory manikins

Published: Wed, 27 Nov 2019 16:12:28 EST

Little is known about the origins of manikins -- small anatomical sculptures thought to be used by doctors four centuries ago -- but now advanced imaging techniques have offered a revealing glimpse inside these captivating ivory dolls. Researchers using micro-CT successfully identified the material composition and components of several ancient ivory manikins, according to a new study.

First implantable magnet resonance detector

Published: Wed, 27 Nov 2019 12:12:42 EST

A new miniature NMR implant measures neuronal activity.

Minimally invasive procedure relieves tremors in Parkinson's patients

Published: Tue, 26 Nov 2019 07:52:40 EST

A procedure that applies pulses of focused ultrasound to the brain is safe and effective for reducing tremors and improving quality of life in people with essential tremor or Parkinson's disease tremor, according to a new study.

Study paves way to better understanding, treatment of arthritis

Published: Mon, 25 Nov 2019 13:13:20 EST

New research has provided the first complete, cellular-level look at what's going on in joints afflicted by osteoarthritis, a debilitating and costly condition that affects nearly one-quarter of adults in the United States.

Perception of touch in the brain

Published: Mon, 25 Nov 2019 12:10:16 EST

More than ten percent of the cerebral cortex are involved in processing information about our sense of touch -- a larger area than previously thought.

Prenatal opioid exposure may alter brain function in babies

Published: Mon, 25 Nov 2019 10:04:03 EST

Connectivity in an area of the brain that regulates emotion may be altered in infants exposed to opioids while in utero, according to a new study.

Using artificial intelligence to determine whether immunotherapy is working

Published: Sat, 23 Nov 2019 10:06:31 EST

Currently, only about 20% of all cancer patients will actually benefit from costly immunotherapy. New research can now determine which ones are in that category, simply by analyzing previously unseen changes in patterns in CT scans taken when the lung cancer is first diagnosed compared to scans taken after the first 2-3 cycles of immunotherapy treatment.

Chronic adversity dampens dopamine production

Published: Wed, 13 Nov 2019 07:51:11 EST

Why only some post-stroke survivors can 'copy what I say'

Published: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 16:02:37 EST

Researchers report that the left lateral temporal cortex must be intact in stroke patients with aphasia if they are to have their speech entrained. In speech entrainment, stroke survivors practice fluent speech production by following along with another speaker.

Low-cost, portable system takes OCT beyond ophthalmology

Published: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 13:04:11 EST

Researchers have developed a way to perform optical coherence tomography (OCT) in hard-to-reach areas of the body such as joints. The advance could help bring this high-resolution biomedical imaging technique to new surgical and medical applications.

Published: Mon, 11 Nov 2019 10:49:57 EST

A handful of left-handed women have excellent senses of smell, despite lacking olfactory bulbs.

To monitor cancer therapy, researchers tag CAR T cells with imaging markers

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 17:05:12 EST

The researchers genetically engineered CAR T cells with molecular tags, which they were able to monitor in an animal model using position emission tomography (PET) imaging.

New X-ray technology could revolutionize how doctors identify abnormalities

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 16:06:01 EST
