Cancer Imaging is the official journal of ICIS, an open access, peer-reviewed journal published by BioMed Central. Original articles, as well as reviews and editorials written by international imaging experts with a subspecialty focus on oncology, are published regularly online;  sign up for alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest articles.

Cancer Imaging Impact factor is 2.404.

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.

All articles published in Cancer Imaging are included in PubMed, the most widely used biomedical bibliographic database service, as well as Embase, EmCare, Google Scholar, MEDLINE, Science Citation Index and Scopus. The full text of all research articles is deposited in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature.

Medical Imaging News -- ScienceDaily

Tai Chi improves brain metabolism and muscle energetics in older adults, study finds

Published: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 10:02:04 EDT

A new study provides insights into the biochemical mechanisms by which Tai Chi -- a mind-body exercise -- may provide both physical and psychological benefits.

Water dynamics indicate tumor status

Published: Wed, 18 Apr 2018 14:14:43 EDT

How aggressive is a tumor? To measure the tumor status without taking tissue samples, researchers have developed a method based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of whole body parts. The technique measures proton nuclear resonance dispersion profiles at low magnetic fields, which reveals the water exchange rate of the tumor cells. Thus, tumor development can be monitored rapidly and noninvasively.

Detailed images of tumor vasculature

Published: Wed, 18 Apr 2018 11:16:52 EDT

Thanks to a new method of analyzing ultrasound images, conventional scanners can be used for generating high-res images of blood vessels in tumors. This approach makes it easier to distinguish between different types of tumors, and it facilitates the tracking of the progress and success of chemotherapy.

Can a simple blood test rule out lung cancer?

Published: Tue, 17 Apr 2018 13:00:58 EDT

A blood test to measure the levels of two proteins in plasma that are common predictors of lung cancer was 98 percent effective in a multicenter clinical trial at distinguishing benign from malignant lung nodules when combined with a patient's clinical characteristics to form an integrated classifier.

A new, streamlined approach to diagnosing and treating bowel cancer

Published: Tue, 17 Apr 2018 11:57:29 EDT

Researchers have discovered a faster, more cost-effective way to determine which DNA mutations cause human bowel cancer.

Observing inflammatory cells in the body

Published: Tue, 17 Apr 2018 11:56:53 EDT

Researchers have developed a new method that enables them to genetically modify immune cells, multiply them and visualize them in living organisms.

Tiny probe can see deep inside the body and take body temperatures

Published: Thu, 12 Apr 2018 10:28:53 EDT

Researchers have invented a world-first tiny fiber-optic probe that can simultaneously measure temperature and see deep inside the body. The probe may help researchers find better treatments to prevent drug-induced overheating of the brain, and potentially refine thermal treatment for cancers.

Fluorescent dye could enable sharper biological imaging

Published: Mon, 09 Apr 2018 09:01:52 EDT

Researchers have now taken a major step toward making short-wave infrared (SWIR) imaging widely available.

Novel PET imaging agent could help guide therapy for brain diseases

Published: Mon, 02 Apr 2018 14:24:55 EDT

Researchers have developed a new PET imaging agent that could help guide and assess treatments for people with various neurological diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and multiple sclerosis. The agent targets receptors in nerve cells in the brain that are involved in learning and memory.

Towards greater MRI sensitivity by harnessing quantum hyperpolarization

Published: Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:37:16 EDT

Researchers have developed a technique which could increase the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for patient diagnosis.
