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.

We’ve have an excellent time at Glasgow ICIS meeting!!

We particularly enjoyed “hands-on workshops” and “Cases I would like to read again”

We are happy with our prize!!

Fetal MRI can reliably spot holoprosencephaly as early as 18 gestational weeks

Published: Mon, 21 May 2018 13:15:39 EDT

Fetal magnetic resonance imaging can reliably spot holoprosencephaly as early as 18 gestational weeks, providing an opportunity to counsel families earlier in their pregnancy, according to new research.

Nanoparticles derived from tea leaves destroy lung cancer cells: Quantum dots have great potential

Published: Mon, 21 May 2018 09:27:20 EDT

Nanoparticles derived from tea leaves inhibit the growth of lung cancer cells, destroying up to 80 percent of them, new research has shown. The team made the discovery while they were testing out a new method of producing a type of nanoparticle called quantum dots. These are tiny particles which measure less than 10 nanometers. A human hair is 40,000 nanometers thick.

MR spectroscopy imaging reveals effects of targeted treatment of mutant IDH1 gliomas

Published: Fri, 18 May 2018 16:40:50 EDT

Using a novel imaging method, a research team is investigating the mechanisms behind a potential targeted treatment for a subtype of the deadly brains tumors called gliomas.

Diamond 'spin-off' tech could lead to low-cost medical imaging and drug discovery tools

Published: Fri, 18 May 2018 14:10:32 EDT

An international team has discovered how to exploit defects in nanoscale and microscale diamonds and potentially enhance the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear magnetic resonance systems while eliminating the need for their costly and bulky superconducting magnets.

Diagnosing breast cancer with an imaging pill

Published: Wed, 16 May 2018 12:37:09 EDT

For women, mammograms are a sometimes uncomfortable, but necessary, annual ritual. But this procedure doesn't always provide accurate results, and it exposes women to X-rays. In a new study, scientists report that they have developed a non-invasive 'disease screening pill' that can make cancerous tumors light up when exposed to near-infrared light in mice without using radiation.

Clues to treating psychoses in mental health patients

Published: Wed, 16 May 2018 12:36:47 EDT

Researchers recently found evidence that boosting how well people at risk for psychosis learn from positive and negative feedback could potentially keep psychosis at bay. The team also found that brain scans using functional magnetic resonance imaging, coupled with behavioral measures, could provide markers for the diagnosis of psychosis risk. Researchers hope findings will help mental health professionals to understand how to better treat their patients with psychoses and prevent the onset of psychosis.

3D images of cancer cells in the body

Published: Tue, 15 May 2018 10:56:57 EDT

Making tumor cells glow: medical physicists have developed a new method that can generate detailed three-dimensional images of the body's interior. This can be used to more closely investigate the development of cancer cells in the body.

How Ebola affects the eye: Study provides further insight into

Published: Tue, 15 May 2018 10:56:24 EDT

A new study identifies the specific characteristics of Ebola retinal lesions, which provide further clues as to how the virus travels to the retina and causes damage.

Brain size mediates the association between height and cognitive ability

Published: Mon, 14 May 2018 09:55:39 EDT

Several studies have found that height and general cognitive ability, or intelligence, are positively associated. A recent study reveals a biological factor underlying this relationship: the size of the cerebral cortex.

Gadolinium deposition in the brain not dose dependent

Published: Fri, 11 May 2018 10:24:09 EDT

Investigators have determined that in children receiving gadolinium as a contrast agent to enhance MRI examinations, signal changes attributed solely to deposition of this material in the brain are not dependent on the amount of gadolinium administered but rather these changes are seen in association with other factors such as the presence of brain tumors and treatment using brain irradiation.

Neuroinflammation seen in spinal cord, nerve roots of patients with chronic sciatica

Published: Wed, 09 May 2018 18:54:51 EDT

A study has found, for the first time in humans, that patients with chronic sciatica -- back pain that shoots down the leg -- have evidence of inflammation in key areas of the nervous system.

Operating on brain gliomas by detecting the 'glow'

Published: Wed, 09 May 2018 16:27:06 EDT

Scientists report on novel imaging technology for malignant brain tumors.

Breakdown of brain's visual networks linked to mental illness

Published: Wed, 09 May 2018 12:16:09 EDT

Brain regions that help process what we see may play a key role in mental health. Researchers used brain imaging to identify patterns of brain connectivity -- the ability of brain regions to talk to each other -- that affect a person's likelihood for developing common forms of mental illness. They found that risk of mental illness increases when the visual cortex struggles to communicate with brain networks responsible for focus and introspection.

MRI 'glove' provides new look at hand anatomy

Published: Tue, 08 May 2018 15:03:19 EDT

A new kind of MRI component in the shape of a glove delivers the first clear images of bones, tendons and ligaments moving together.

Which targeted nutritional approaches can bolster micro-preemies' brain development?

Published: Sat, 05 May 2018 09:18:12 EDT

The volume of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and calories consumed by very vulnerable preemies significantly contributes to increased brain volume and white matter development, however additional research is needed to determine specific nutritional approaches that best support these infants' developing brains.

Nation's first cardiac ablation with mapping system recently cleared by the FDA performed at Penn Medicine

Published: Thu, 03 May 2018 14:29:43 EDT

After eight years of failed treatment for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), a New Jersey patient became the first patient in the United States to undergo cardiac ablation -- a procedure in which an electrophysiologist will scar or destroy tissue in the heart that's allowing incorrect electrical signals to cause an abnormal heart rhythm -- using an intraoperative imaging and mapping system recently cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

PET imaging agent could provide early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis

Published: Thu, 03 May 2018 14:27:01 EDT

A novel PET tracer can visualize joint inflammation and could provide early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, a common autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of joints and can lead to deformity and dysfunction.

Early HIV treatment key to avoiding brain atrophy

Published: Thu, 03 May 2018 14:26:54 EDT

While the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has largely dropped from news headlines since the 1990s, at the end of 2016 there were 36.7 million people living with the infection, and of those only 53 per cent had access to treatment. A new study underscores the neurological consequences of exposure to HIV without antiretroviral therapy.

Novel theranostic approach for treating pancreatic cancer patients shows promise

Published: Tue, 01 May 2018 16:10:00 EDT

German researchers have developed a novel diagnostic and therapeutic (theranostic) procedure for patients with ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma, a deadly cancer with an extremely poor prognosis (five-year survival rate of less than 5 percent) and limited treatment options.

Acute and chronic changes in myelin following mild traumatic brain injury

Published: Tue, 01 May 2018 08:55:36 EDT

Preliminary research using mcDESPOT magnetic resonance imaging shows changes in the myelin content of white matter in the brain following mild traumatic brain injury. Myelin changes are apparent at the time of injury and three months afterward.
