The most important meeting in the emerging field of cancer imaging that brings together many key opinion leaders and new adopters. Excellent quality of talks with high educational value.

Gregor Thörmer | Siemens Healthcare GmbH

I am so very happy I came to ICIS this year, my first time.  Some of the talks were truly “life changing”.  I will gladly try to implement things I heard into my daily practice.  This conference showed me again what an exciting job I have and that here at ICIS I can acquire tools to truly make a difference.  Thank you!  Becoming a member of ICIS is a must!
