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.

As a Radiologist who focuses on Cancer Imaging, I find ICIS courses and meetings extremely useful and stimulating. Not only do I get to meet the doyens in the field, the courses and meetings are so rich in state of art technology and new developments in the field of cancer imaging. There is no other imaging conference, that gives me so much value for the time.
