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.

The whole course proved to cover a wide range of relevant topics to a very high standard.  I would highly recommend it.
