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 2.404

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.

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.

Abnormal brain connections seen in preschoolers with autism

Published: Tue, 27 Mar 2018 09:40:07 EDT

Preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, have abnormal connections between certain networks of their brains that can be seen using a special MRI technique, according to a new study. Researchers said the findings may one day help guide treatments for ASD.

Looking deeper into brain function

Published: Mon, 26 Mar 2018 11:01:34 EDT

As neuroscience enters the era of big data bases, a new approach could offer a deeper and more systematic understanding of brain function, scientists argue.

Diagnosing breast cancer using red light

Published: Fri, 23 Mar 2018 11:32:21 EDT
