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.

PET imaging tracks Zika virus infection, disease progression in mouse model

Published: Tue, 19 Sep 2017 16:41:25 EDT

For the first time, scientists have used Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging to study brain inflammation following Zika virus infection in mice, according to a study. Traditional methods of infectious disease research using animal models provide limited information about disease progression until the study's endpoint, when investigators can analyze tissues from those animals. Imaging studies allow longitudinal studies of the same animal during the course of infection.

Decreased glucose metabolism in medial prefrontal areas is associated with nutritional status in patients with prodromal and early Alzheimer's disease

Published: Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:41:35 EDT

A new study shows that hypometabolism in the medial prefrontal areas is specifically associated with Alzheimer's disease-related nutritional problems, and decrease in fat mass may have a key role.

New software turns mobile-phone accessory into breathing monitor

Published: Wed, 13 Sep 2017 19:31:24 EDT

Researchers have developed new software that makes it possible to use low-cost, thermal cameras attached to mobile phones to track how fast a person is breathing. This type of mobile thermal imaging could be used for monitoring breathing problems in elderly people living alone, people suspected of having sleep apnea or babies at risk for sudden infant death syndrome.

Medicine of the future: New microchip technology could be used to track 'smart pills'

Published: Tue, 12 Sep 2017 13:48:44 EDT

Chemical and electrical engineers team up to create a new breed of microdevices for medical diagnostics.

Patients to benefit from new 3-D visualizations of the heart

Published: Mon, 11 Sep 2017 12:26:23 EDT

In the future heart surgeons will have access to a new type of 3-D visualization of the cardiac conduction system. This technique could provide improved safety for patients and improve surgical outcomes in patients suffering from heart disease and cardiac malformations, explains a new report.

Eye changes may signal frontotemporal lobe degeneration

Published: Fri, 08 Sep 2017 20:55:20 EDT

Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition that is present in tens of thousands of Americans, but is often difficult to diagnose accurately. Now a study has found evidence that a simple eye exam and retinal imaging test may help improve that accuracy.

New guidelines discourage use of brain imaging as a 'lie detector' for chronic pain

Published: Fri, 08 Sep 2017 20:54:50 EDT

A task force consisting of researchers from around the world has released a set of recommendations that advise against the use of brain imaging as a test for chronic pain.

New dental imaging method uses squid ink to fish for gum disease

Published: Thu, 07 Sep 2017 10:24:22 EDT

Squid ink could one day make getting checked for gum disease at the dentist less tedious and even painless. By combining squid ink with light and ultrasound, a team led by engineers has developed a new dental imaging method to examine a patient's gums that is noninvasive, more comprehensive and more accurate than the state of the art.

New possibility of studying how Alzheimer's disease affects the brain at different ages

Published: Thu, 31 Aug 2017 09:33:44 EDT

Alzheimer’s disease can lead to several widely divergent symptoms and, so far, its various expressions have mainly been observed through the behavior and actions of patients. Researchers have now produced images showing the changes in the brain associated with these symptoms – a development which increases knowledge and could facilitate future diagnostics and treatment.

Origins of autism: Abnormalities in sensory processing at six months

Published: Tue, 29 Aug 2017 11:38:30 EDT

The origins of autism remain mysterious. What areas of the brain are involved, and when do the first signs appear? New findings brings us closer to understanding the pathology of autism, and the point at which it begins to take shape in the human brain. Such knowledge will allow earlier interventions in the future and better outcomes for autistic children.
