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 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.

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.

The naked eye alone is not enough to ensure the accurate diagnosis of skin cancer, say experts

Published: Fri, 07 Dec 2018 21:08:00 EST

The visual inspection of a suspicious skin lesion using the naked eye alone is not enough to ensure the accurate diagnosis of skin cancer, a group of experts have concluded.

New imaging tools that trace key breast cancer enzymes may help guide therapies

Published: Thu, 06 Dec 2018 12:00:59 EST

A set of emerging diagnostic tools may help identify breast cancer patients who are most likely to benefit from therapies that target important enzymes fueling a range of subtypes, including BCRA-mutated and triple negative cancers.

A new molecular player involved in T cell activation

Published: Thu, 06 Dec 2018 11:59:55 EST

Scientists have imaged live T cells to reveal the role of CLIP-170 in T-cell activation, a critical process in the immune response.

Revolutionary technology pinpoints biopsies to detect prostate cancer

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 23:26:55 EST

Medical software that overlays tumor information from MRI scans onto ultrasound images can help guide surgeons conducting biopsies and improve prostate cancer detection.

Whole-brain imaging of mice during behavior

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 13:41:23 EST

In a new study, researchers demonstrate how functional ultrasound imaging can yield high-resolution, brain-wide activity maps of mice for specific behaviors. The non-invasive technology has promising applications for ophthalmologic, neurologic and psychiatric diseases.

More sensitive MRI diagnostics thanks to innovative 'elastic' contrast media

Published: Fri, 30 Nov 2018 09:01:57 EST

Researchers have found a new method for obtaining high-quality images in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), that requires less contrast medium compared to current methods.

Safer and cheaper 3D medical imaging

Published: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 10:35:12 EST

A new study has discovered a promising way to significantly lower doses of X-rays that has the potential to revolutionize 3D medical imaging and make screening for early signs of disease much cheaper and safer.

High-contrast imaging for cancer therapy with protons

Published: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 10:35:02 EST

Medical physicists have combined magnetic resonance imaging with a proton beam, thus demonstrating that in principle, this commonly used imaging method can indeed work with particle beam cancer treatments. This opens up new opportunities for targeted, healthy tissue-sparing cancer therapy.

Youth football changes nerve fibers in brain

Published: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 08:47:11 EST

MRI scans show that repetitive blows to the head result in brain changes among youth football players, according to a new study.

Cryoablation shows promise in treating low-risk breast cancers

Published: Wed, 28 Nov 2018 08:27:21 EST

Cryoablation -- the destruction of cancer cells through freezing -- shows early indications of effectiveness in treating women with low-risk breast cancers. Researchers said that over the four years of the study, there has only been one case of cancer recurrence out of 180 patients.

Microscope measures muscle weakness

Published: Wed, 28 Nov 2018 08:27:13 EST

Biotechnologists have developed a system to accurately measure muscle weakness caused by structural changes in muscle tissue. The new method allows muscle function to be assessed using imaging without the need for sophisticated biomechanical recordings, and could in future even make taking tissue samples for diagnosing myopathy superfluous.

Advanced imaging technology measures magnetite levels in the living brain

Published: Tue, 27 Nov 2018 17:14:13 EST

Investigators have used magnetoencephalography -- a technology that measures brain activity by detecting the weak magnetic fields produced by the brain's normal electrical currents -- to measure levels of the iron-based mineral called magnetite in the human brain.

Insight into the brain's hidden depths: Scientists develop minimally invasive probe

Published: Tue, 27 Nov 2018 11:10:33 EST

This could be a major step towards a better understanding of the functions of deeply hidden brain compartments, such as the formation of memories, as well as related dysfunctions, including Alzheimer's disease. Researchers have succeeded in using a hair-thin fiber endoscope to gain insights into hardly-accessible brain structures.

Sequential imaging of Zika-exposed fetuses reveals most have normal brain development

Published: Mon, 26 Nov 2018 12:30:11 EST

Ultrasound (US) imaging performed during pregnancy and after childbirth revealed most Zika-related brain abnormalities experienced by infants exposed to the Zika virus during pregnancy. Some Zika-exposed infants whose imaging had been normal during pregnancy had mild brain abnormalities detected by US and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after they were born.

Artificial intelligence may help reduce gadolinium dose in MRI

Slowed brainwaves linked to early signs of brain cells going haywire due to dementia

Published: Wed, 21 Nov 2018 07:32:08 EST

To turn back the clock on Alzheimer's disease, many researchers are seeking ways to effectively diagnose the neurodegenerative disorder earlier. One potential way to do this is by tracking a person's brainwave activity, which slows down in certain brain regions that are likely to be affected by the disease next, according to recent findings.

MRI scans shows promise in predicting dementia

Published: Tue, 20 Nov 2018 12:59:36 EST

Doctors may one day be able to gauge a patient's risk of dementia with an MRI scan, according to a new study. Using a new technique for analyzing MRI data, researchers were able to predict who would experience cognitive decline with 89 percent accuracy.
