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 3.153

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.

A really enjoyable, informative and fun three days in a beautiful town.

An exception to the rule: An intact sense of smell without a crucial olfactory brain structure

Published: Mon, 11 Nov 2019 10:49:57 EST

A handful of left-handed women have excellent senses of smell, despite lacking olfactory bulbs.

To monitor cancer therapy, researchers tag CAR T cells with imaging markers

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 17:05:12 EST

The researchers genetically engineered CAR T cells with molecular tags, which they were able to monitor in an animal model using position emission tomography (PET) imaging.

New X-ray technology could revolutionize how doctors identify abnormalities

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 16:06:01 EST

Using ground-breaking technology, researchers are testing a new method of X-ray imaging that uses color to identify microfractures in bones. Microfractures were previously impossible to see using standard X-ray imaging.

Placenta imaging method may aid diagnosis of pregnancy complications

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 09:26:02 EST

A new imaging technique to track maternal blood flow to the placenta has the potential to help diagnose several common complications in early pregnancy, according to a new study. Researchers used the technique, referred to as pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling magnetic resonance imaging (pCASL MRI), to identify women with reduced placental blood flow who later developed one or more complications.

Most surfing injuries involve shoulder or knee, surgery usually not required

Published: Wed, 06 Nov 2019 08:55:23 EST

A new study characterizes MRI patterns of acute surfing-related injuries in patients seeking care at HSS. Researchers also report on the proportion of those injuries that required orthopedic surgical intervention. The study found that the most common injuries involved the knee or shoulder. Surgery was usually not necessary.

Zooming into cilia sheds light into blinding diseases

Published: Tue, 05 Nov 2019 13:30:41 EST

A new study reveals an unprecedented close-up view of cilia linked to blindness.

'Intelligent' metamaterial makes MRIs affordable and accessible

Published: Tue, 05 Nov 2019 11:35:03 EST

Researchers have developed a new, 'intelligent' metamaterial -- which costs less than ten dollars to build -- that could revolutionize magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), making the entire MRI process faster, safer, and more accessible to patients around the world.

Eye on research: A new way to detect and study retinoblastoma

Published: Mon, 04 Nov 2019 15:57:10 EST

Researchers advance the field of retinoblastoma research through the discovery and use of aqueous humor biopsy. Genetic tumor information not present in the blood can be detected in this fluid from the eye.

The fetal brain possesses adult-like networks

Published: Mon, 04 Nov 2019 13:04:41 EST

The fundamental organization of brain networks is established in utero during the second and third trimesters of fetal development, according to new research. The finding lays the groundwork for understanding how the prenatal period shapes future brain function.

Artificial intelligence learns muscle anatomy in CT images

Published: Thu, 31 Oct 2019 10:05:26 EDT

Scientists report a new deep learning tool based on Bayesian U-Net architecture that can segment individual muscles from CT images. The high accuracy of the results offers a new level of personalized biomechanical modeling for patients for better therapies and athletes for better performance.

New technique may reveal the health of human hair follicles

Published: Wed, 30 Oct 2019 07:30:01 EDT

A new method recently examines the activity of hair follicles and could be useful for testing the effects of different treatments on hair growth.

Researchers develop noninvasive method to detect early-stage liver disease

Published: Tue, 29 Oct 2019 14:07:08 EDT

A safer and more sensitive contrast dye for MRI tests may provide the first effective, noninvasive method for detecting and diagnosing early-stage liver diseases, including liver fibrosis. Tests in animal models show the protein-based contrast agent, ProCA32.collagen1, can detect the early stage of alcohol-induced liver fibrosis and Non-Alcoholic SteatoHepatitis, which is the most severe form of non-alcohol fatty liver disease.

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound predicts nodule transformation to hepatocellular carcinoma

Published: Thu, 24 Oct 2019 16:43:26 EDT

A new study has identified sonographic biomarkers that can predict eventual malignant transformation of pathologically confirmed cirrhotic nodules for patients at risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). These additional imaging features may have the potential to be adopted as ancillary or even major features to stratify probability for HCC in the contrast-enhanced LI-RADS system.

Looking inside the body with indirect light

Published: Wed, 23 Oct 2019 09:34:41 EDT

Scientists report an imaging technique that gives finer details of blood vessels in live patients in real time than current diagnostic machines used in the clinic. The technique depends on capturing and analyzing non-epipolar light, which carries scattering information useful for detailing objects under the skin's surface.
