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.

PET/CT imaging agent shows promise for better diagnosis of acute venous thromboembolism

Published: Sat, 16 Feb 2019 09:45:10 EST

Researchers report that a new nuclear medicine tracer may allow better diagnosis of acute venous thromboembolism (VTE). Acute VTE is a disease that includes deep-vein thrombosis and its complication, pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.

New method uses fluorescence to identify disease-causing forms of proteins

Published: Thu, 14 Feb 2019 11:56:24 EST

A new method uses fluorescence to detect potentially disease-causing forms of proteins as they unravel due to stress or mutations.

What happens to magnetic nanoparticles once in cells?

Published: Thu, 14 Feb 2019 09:33:52 EST

Although magnetic nanoparticles are being used more and more in cell imaging and tissue bioengineering, what happens to them within stem cells in the long term remained undocumented. Researchers have shown substantial degradation of these nanoparticles, followed in certain cases by the cells ''re-magnetizing.'' This phenomenon is the sign of biosynthesis of new magnetic nanoparticles from iron released in the intracellular medium by the degradation of the first nanoparticles.

MRI and computer modeling reveals how wrist bones move

Published: Wed, 13 Feb 2019 14:57:25 EST

We use our wrists constantly, but how do they work? Researchers have now demonstrated a longtime assumption about individuals' right and left wrists, while also finding differences between wrists of males and females: discoveries that could help inform and guide future treatments.

Light and sound gauge the temperature of deep tissues

Published: Wed, 13 Feb 2019 13:22:02 EST

Biomedical engineers have demonstrated how photoacoustic imaging can take the temperature of deep tissue more quickly and accurately than current techniques. This discovery is expected to play an important role in advancing thermal-based therapies to treat cancer.

Brain clock ticks differently in autism

Published: Wed, 13 Feb 2019 09:08:14 EST

The neural 'time windows' in certain small brain areas contribute to the complex cognitive symptoms of autism, new research suggests. In a brain imaging study of adults, the severity of autistic symptoms was linked to how long these brain areas stored information. The differences in neural timescales may underlie features of autism like hypersensitivity and could be useful as a future diagnostic tool.

PET imaging agent may allow early measurement of efficacy of breast cancer therapy

Published: Mon, 11 Feb 2019 16:39:45 EST

Physicians may soon have a new way to measure the efficacy of hormone therapy for breast cancer patients.

Benefits of delayed cord clamping in healthy babies

Published: Mon, 11 Feb 2019 10:54:02 EST

A five-minute delay in the clamping of healthy infants' umbilical cords results in increased iron stores and brain myelin in areas important for early-life functional development, a new study has found.

MRI cardiac stress test shows promise at identifying fatal heart disease

Published: Fri, 08 Feb 2019 14:21:27 EST

Results from a large, multi-center study suggest that cardiac magnetic resonance, or CMR, has potential as a non-invasive, non-toxic alternative to stress echocardiograms, catheterizations and stress nuclear exams in identifying the severity of coronary artery disease.

New drug brings unexpected hope in targeting cancer cells

Published: Fri, 08 Feb 2019 08:22:00 EST

An unexpected finding in preclinical platelet studies could provide a novel approach to targeting and destroying difficult-to-treat cancer cells, providing new therapeutic options for a range of cancers.
