Cancer Imaging Journal

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.

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.

I attended the ICIS Conference for the first time 2 years ago in Germany, I was impressed by the high quality presentations and posters, excellent organization of the conference and great venue. Speaking of venues, hard to beat last year’s conference held at The British Museum! The workshops were a great additional learning opportunity, where I could hear from the best experts in the world about their way of thinking and interpretation of cancer imaging. It was like opening the doors into the different radiology departments across the world and seeing what was happening there. It felt natural, as everybody was very open and positive, creating a less formal atmosphere than you would expect from such a high level conference. I also absolutely loved the social gathering during and after the conferences with the opportunity to relax, network, get the awards, say “good bye” to new friends and colleagues and plan the next presentation at the next conference. I’m looking forward to coming back again.
