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 am so glad I came to ICIS. It was an excellent meeting with very interesting topics and with excellent facilities.  It is always a pleasure to attend ICIS as it is an ideal meeting to interact with people from many countries and to learn about new skills in oncology imaging and novel techniques. You always choose beautiful places for ICIS and we hope to come again next year to London for another wonderful meeting.

Pushing the boundaries of 3D microscopy

Published: Wed, 16 Jan 2019 11:10:49 EST

Two newly developed methods will help researchers to study the 3D structure of complex surfaces and of individual neurons better than ever before. Technologists report new imaging protocols that will advance neuroscience and (bio)imaging in general.

Physics can show us the inside of tumors

Published: Tue, 08 Jan 2019 12:55:06 EST

A team of physicists has demonstrated the potential, for oncology, of an imaging technique based only on the physical properties of tumors. It can differentiate populations of malignant cells and monitor how effective an anticancer treatment is. These results should help in the design of new therapeutic molecules and in the personalization of treatments.

Controlling neurons with light -- but without wires or batteries

Published: Wed, 02 Jan 2019 15:12:15 EST

In optogenetics, scientists use light to turn groups of neurons in the brain on or off. New research demonstrates a new optogenetics method that eliminates the need for bulky optical fibers, gives researchers more precise control of the light's intensity, and allows for stimulating multiple areas of the brain simultaneously.

Your brain rewards you twice per meal: When you eat and when food reaches your stomach

Published: Thu, 27 Dec 2018 11:14:20 EST

We know a good meal can stimulate the release of the feel-good hormone dopamine, and now a study in humans suggests that dopamine release in the brain occurs at two different times: at the time the food is first ingested and another once the food reaches the stomach.

Artificial intelligence system learns to diagnose, classify intracranial hemorrhage

Published: Fri, 21 Dec 2018 12:37:43 EST

A team of investigators has developed a system using artificial intelligence to quickly diagnose and classify brain hemorrhages and to provide the basis of its decisions from relatively small image datasets.

Novel imaging technique brings diagnostic potential into operating room

Published: Thu, 20 Dec 2018 13:02:12 EST

Researchers have successfully visualized the tumor microenvironment of human breast tissue shortly after it was surgically removed from a patient in the operating room. The researchers achieved this using a new portable optical imaging system.

Higher radiation dose needed to X-ray obese patients increases cancer risk

Published: Thu, 20 Dec 2018 07:59:58 EST

Extremely obese people are needing a far higher dose of radiation during x-ray examinations than people of normal weight, increasing their risk of cancer, new research has shown.

MRI technique shows unique signatures of concussion in rugby players

Published: Wed, 19 Dec 2018 11:55:47 EST

The research team studied the brains of young female athletes and used a technique that combined multiple brain imaging measures to be able to look at structural and functional information at the same time. The result was a much more sensitive and complete picture of concussion injury.

Food allergies linked to increased disease activity in multiple sclerosis

Published: Tue, 18 Dec 2018 18:58:28 EST

Food allergies are associated with heightened levels of disease activity in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), new research shows.

MRI effective for monitoring liver fat in obese patients

Published: Tue, 18 Dec 2018 10:03:55 EST

MRI provides a safe, noninvasive way to monitor liver fat levels in people who undergo weight loss treatments for obesity, according to a new study.

Wiring diagram of the brain provides a clearer picture of brain scan data

Published: Sat, 15 Dec 2018 14:13:48 EST

Neuroscientists have used data from the human brain connectome -- a publicly available 'wiring diagram' of the human brain based on data from thousands of healthy human volunteers -- to reassess the findings from neuroimaging studies of patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Novel technique may significantly reduce breast biopsies

Published: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 19:21:53 EST

A novel technique that uses mammography to determine the biological tissue composition of a tumor could help reduce unnecessary breast biopsies, according to a new study.

Predicting leaky heart valves with 3D printing

Published: Mon, 10 Dec 2018 11:57:49 EST

Researchers have created a novel 3D printing workflow that allows cardiologists to evaluate how different valve sizes will interact with each patient's unique anatomy, before the medical procedure is actually performed. This protocol uses CT scan data to produce physical models of individual patients' aortic valves, in addition to a 'sizer' device to determine the perfect replacement valve size.

Promising diagnostic tool for Alzheimer's disease

Published: Mon, 10 Dec 2018 09:10:24 EST

Researchers have identified in live human brains new radioactive 'tracer' molecules that bind to and 'light up' tau tangles, a protein associated with a number of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.

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

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.
