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.

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.

Silencing 'junk' gene could halt tumor growth

Published: Thu, 14 Dec 2017 09:00:00 PST

Researchers have found that a gene they call THOR produces a long, non-coding RNA that has a role in cancer, and whose silencing stops tumor growth.

What is leukopenia?

Published: Wed, 13 Dec 2017 09:00:00 PST

Leukopenia is a condition where a person has a reduced number of white blood cells and an increased risk of infection. Learn more.

Cancer: Some immune cells found to give tumors a helping hand

Published: Wed, 13 Dec 2017 07:00:00 PST

A study shows that neutrophils, a type of immune cell, work with the protein Snail to maintain a microenvironment that favors tumor growth in lung cancer.

Cancer breakthrough: Nanoparticles used to detect micro tumors

Published: Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 PST

Micrometastases are not usually picked up by current cancer screening technology because of their minute size. Using nanoprobes might solve that problem.

Prostate cancer mortality 87 percent higher in American Indians

Published: Tue, 12 Dec 2017 09:00:00 PST

A new analysis takes a look at cancer mortality among American Indians and Alaskan Natives. Survival rates for some cancers are significantly poorer.

How inhibiting one protein could help to treat pancreatic cancer

Published: Mon, 11 Dec 2017 07:00:00 PST

Targeting SUV420H2 may increase treatment response as the enzyme silences genes that stop pancreatic cancer cells morphing into a more aggressive state.

What are bone lesions? Types and treatment

Published: Sat, 09 Dec 2017 09:00:00 PST

Bone lesions are lumps or masses of abnormal tissue produced when cells within the bone start to divide uncontrollably. They may result in bone tumors.

Huntington's disease: Could a cancer drug hold the key?

Published: Fri, 08 Dec 2017 09:00:00 PST

A drug that is used to treat advanced skin lymphomas may also be effective in treating Huntington's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Could our body clock help to prevent cancer?

Published: Fri, 08 Dec 2017 00:00:00 PST

Researchers reveal how a newly discovered role for our biological clock, or circadian rhythm, may help to prevent or treat cancer.

How cancer could be treated with an old alcoholism drug

Published: Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:00:00 PST

New research exposes the mechanism by which the anti-alcohol addiction drug disulfiram, also known as Antabuse, could be used to treat cancer.

Aspirin may strengthen anti-cancer drugs

Published: Wed, 06 Dec 2017 00:00:00 PST

Aspirin in conjunction with Sorafenib — an anti-cancer drug —increases its ability to destroy malignant cells in some difficult-to-treat cancers.

Could targeting this gene stop melanoma from spreading?

Published: Tue, 05 Dec 2017 00:00:00 PST
