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.

Artificial intelligence may fall short when analyzing data across multiple health systems

Published: Fri, 09 Nov 2018 10:14:11 EST

A new study shows deep learning models must be carefully tested across multiple environments before being put into clinical practice.

Hypertonic saline may help babies with cystic fibrosis breathe better

Published: Fri, 09 Nov 2018 07:30:59 EST

Babies with cystic fibrosis may breathe better by inhaling hypertonic saline, according to a randomized controlled trial conducted in Germany.

Healing kidneys with nanotechnology

Published: Thu, 08 Nov 2018 14:23:15 EST

Researchers have developed a new method for treating and preventing acute kidney injury. Their technique involves the use of tiny, self-assembling forms measuring just billionths of a meter in diameter.

Traditional glaucoma test can miss severity of disease

Published: Thu, 08 Nov 2018 11:17:50 EST

The most common test for glaucoma can underestimate the severity of the condition by not detecting the presence of central vision loss, also known as macular degeneration, according to a new study.

How beatboxers produce sound: Using real-time MRI to understand

Published: Wed, 07 Nov 2018 17:29:01 EST

Beatboxing is a musical art form in which performers use their vocal tract to create percussive sounds, and a team of researchers is using real-time MRI to study the production of beatboxing sounds.

Ultrasound releases drug to alter activity in targeted brain areas in rats

Published: Wed, 07 Nov 2018 11:18:50 EST

Scientists have developed a noninvasive way of delivering drugs to within a few millimeters of a desired point in the brain. The method, tested in rats, uses focused ultrasound to jiggle drug molecules loose from nanoparticle 'cages' that have been injected into the bloodstream.

Artificial intelligence predicts Alzheimer's years before diagnosis

Published: Tue, 06 Nov 2018 10:42:49 EST

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology improves the ability of brain imaging to predict Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study.

Chronic exposure to excess noise may increase risk for heart disease, stroke

Published: Mon, 05 Nov 2018 08:17:49 EST

Exposure to environmental noise appears to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes by fueling the activity of a brain region involved in stress response.

Genetic factors tied to obesity may protect against diabetes

Published: Fri, 02 Nov 2018 10:59:59 EDT

Some genetic variations associated with obesity actually protect against Type 2 diabetes, heart attack and stroke, new findings suggest.

High-resolution MRI imaging inspired by the humble antenna

Published: Wed, 31 Oct 2018 14:15:05 EDT

Radio frequency (RF) probes designed like by microstrip patch antennas create uniform and strong magnetic field in high frequency MRI machines, unlike convention coil and bird cage shaped coils used today. These probes also showed smaller radiation losses, making them competitive, even advantageous to conventional methods.

Three types of depression identified

Published: Wed, 31 Oct 2018 09:33:37 EDT

Scientists have used brain imaging to identify three sub-types of depression -- including one that is unresponsive to commonly prescribed serotonin boosting drugs.

Facial asymmetry increases with age

Published: Tue, 30 Oct 2018 13:43:39 EDT

Asymmetry between the two sides of the face increases steadily with aging -- a finding with important implications for facial rejuvenation and reconstructive procedures.

Novel quantum dots enhance cell imaging

Published: Mon, 29 Oct 2018 16:55:59 EDT

Researchers have engineered a new type of molecular probe that can measure and count RNA in cells and tissue without organic dyes. The probe is based on the conventional fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique, but it relies on compact quantum dots to illuminate molecules and diseased cells rather than fluorescent dyes.

Evidence mounts that an eye scan may detect early Alzheimer's disease

Published: Mon, 29 Oct 2018 10:28:31 EDT

Results from two studies show that a new, non-invasive imaging device can see signs of Alzheimer's disease in a matter of seconds. The researchers show that the small blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye are altered in patients with Alzheimer's.

Imaging collaboration sheds new light on cancer growth

Published: Mon, 29 Oct 2018 10:27:52 EDT

Researchers have uncovered new insights into how the normal controls on cell growth are lost in cancer cells, leading to rapid tumor expansion.

Drugs' side effects in lungs 'more widespread than thought'

Published: Mon, 29 Oct 2018 08:40:47 EDT

A systematic review of research has revealed that the toxic effects on the lung of drugs commonly taken to treat a range of common conditions is much more widespread than thought.

New air-filled fiber bundle could make endoscopes smaller

Published: Wed, 24 Oct 2018 14:26:15 EDT

Researchers have fabricated a new kind of air-filled optical fiber bundle that could greatly improve endoscopes used for medical procedures like minimally invasive surgeries or bronchoscopies.

Augmented reality may assist cardiologists plan and perform complex procedures

Published: Wed, 24 Oct 2018 11:21:53 EDT

Researchers have taken a new look at augmented reality's potential to help cardiologists visualize myocardial scarring in the heart as they perform ventricular tachycardia ablation or other electrophysiological interventions. The team's findings demonstrate that the new augmented reality technology confers a number of advantages.

Monitoring electromagnetic signals in the brain with MRI

Published: Mon, 22 Oct 2018 12:39:52 EDT

MIT engineers have devised a new technique to detect either electrical activity or optical signals in the brain, using a minimally invasive technique based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
