Our Journal - Cancer Imaging

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 3.016.

2018 Abstract Book

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.

Scientists discover new method for developing tracers used for medical imaging

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

Researchers discovered a method for creating radioactive tracers to better track pharmaceuticals in the body as well as image diseases, such as cancer, and other medical conditions.

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.

Promising treatment for shoulder pain in wheelchair users with spinal cord injury

Published: Wed, 12 Jun 2019 14:13:58 EDT

Researchers have reported the first case of successful, long-term relief of chronic refractory shoulder pain in a wheelchair user with spinal cord injury following a single injection of autologous, micro-fragmented adipose tissue.

New metamaterial can improve MRI quality and reduce scan time

Published: Mon, 10 Jun 2019 11:15:36 EDT

New magnetic metamaterial could be used as an additive technology to increase the imaging power of lower-strength MRI machines, increasing the number of patients seen by clinics and decreasing associated costs, without any of the risks that come with using higher-strength magnetic fields.

Machine learning approach for low-dose CT imaging yields superior results

Published: Mon, 10 Jun 2019 11:15:05 EDT

Machine learning has the potential to vastly advance medical imaging, particularly computerized tomography (CT) scanning, by reducing radiation exposure and improving image quality.

AI tool helps radiologists detect brain aneurysms

Published: Fri, 07 Jun 2019 19:37:07 EDT

Radiologists improved their diagnoses of brain aneurysms with the help of an artificial intelligence algorithm developed by medical experts and computer scientists.

New radiotracer can identify nearly 30 types of cancer

Published: Fri, 07 Jun 2019 19:36:55 EDT

A novel class of radiopharmaceuticals has proven effective in non-invasively identifying nearly 30 types of malignant tumors. Using 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT, researchers were able to image the tumors with very high uptake and image contrast, paving the way for new applications in tumor characterization, staging and therapy.
