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.

Risk gene for Alzheimer's has early effects on the brain

Published: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 11:00:01 EDT

A genetic predisposition to late-onset Alzheimer's disease affects how the brains of young adults cope with certain memory tasks. Researchers find are based on studies with magnetic resonance imaging in individuals at the age of about 20 years. The scientists suspect that the observed effects could be related to very early disease processes.

Biologic therapy for psoriasis may reduce heart disease

Published: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 09:01:19 EDT

Biologic therapy for psoriasis - protein-based infusions to suppress inflammation - was associated with a significant reduction in high-risk plaque in heart arteries, over one-year, according to new research. The positive association between biologic therapy and a decrease in high-risk plaque in heart arteries was significant after adjusting for cardiovascular risk factors and psoriasis severity.

Imaging agent spotlights inflammation

Published: Mon, 14 Sep 2020 09:19:52 EDT

Researchers have created a new PET imaging agent that detects signs of inflammation. Such a tracer could aid diagnosis and study of diseases ranging from cardiovascular disease to cancer to COVID-19.

Restless nature of human spinal cord revealed by non-invasive functional imaging

Published: Wed, 09 Sep 2020 11:48:46 EDT

Scientists have developed a non-invasive technique for unraveling the complex dynamics generated by spinal cord circuits to unprecedented detail, a first in functional magnetic resonance imaging that may one day help diagnose spinal cord dysfunction or injury.

People with anorexia and body dysmorphic disorder show brain similarities, differences

Published: Tue, 08 Sep 2020 17:05:39 EDT

A new study shows partially overlapping patterns of brain function in people with anorexia nervosa and those with body dysmorphic disorder, a related psychiatric condition characterized by misperception that particular physical characteristics are defective.

Endometriosis: No cure, but diagnosis could avert surgery

Published: Tue, 08 Sep 2020 10:16:31 EDT

176 million women worldwide who have endometriosis, a chronic, painful gynaecological condition. It affects nearly three times as many women as breast cancer.

Radiologists find chest X-rays highly predictive of COVID-19

Published: Thu, 03 Sep 2020 12:32:54 EDT

Radiologists investigated the usefulness of chest X-rays in COVID-19 and found they could aid in a rapid diagnosis of the disease, especially in areas with limited testing capacity or delayed test results.

Using tattoo ink to find cancer

Published: Wed, 02 Sep 2020 11:44:53 EDT

The humble ink in a tattoo artist's needle could be the key to improving the detection of cancer. Researchers recently developed new imaging contrast agents using common dyes such as tattoo ink and food dyes. When these dyes are attached to nanoparticles, they can illuminate cancers, allowing medical professionals to better differentiate between cancer cells and normal adjacent cells.

Why 'one day at a time' works for recovering alcoholics

Published: Thu, 27 Aug 2020 10:59:40 EDT

'One day at a time' is a mantra for recovering alcoholics, for whom each day without a drink builds the strength to go on to the next. A new brain imaging study shows why the approach works.

Lung injuries from vaping have characteristic patterns on CT

Published: Thu, 27 Aug 2020 10:18:33 EDT

Injuries to the lungs from vaping have suggestive patterns on CT scans that could help physicians make accurate diagnoses and reduce unnecessary biopsies, according to a new study.
