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.

Coronary calcium scoring: Personalized preventive care for those most at risk

Published: Mon, 06 Jul 2020 10:08:16 EDT

An imaging test called coronary calcium scoring can help doctors to make the right recommendation about the use of statin therapy. The test is a 10-minute CT (computed tomography) scan looking for calcium deposits in the arteries supplying blood to the heart. Calcium deposits indicate the presence of coronary plaque, also known as atherosclerosis.

New study looks at post-COVID-19 emerging disease in children

Published: Thu, 25 Jun 2020 14:07:19 EDT

In recent weeks, a multisystem hyperinflammatory condition has emerged in children in association with prior exposure or infection to SARS-CoV-2. A new case series examines the spectrum of imaging findings in children with the post-COVID-19 inflammatory condition known in the US as Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C).

Bringing burnt bones back to 'life' using 3D technology

Published: Wed, 24 Jun 2020 09:59:50 EDT

Forensic scientists have discovered a new way of presenting fragile evidence, by reconstructing a 'jigsaw' of human bone fragments using 3D printing. In the first known study of its kind, researchers took fragmented burnt human bones and tested the ability to make 3D models suitable to be shown to a jury in court.

Alzheimer's: New gene may drive earliest brain changes

Published: Mon, 22 Jun 2020 19:43:49 EDT

A newly discovered Alzheimer's gene appears to drive the first appearance of amyloid plaque in the brain, and could lead to new therapies that prevent the disease from developing.

Irregular findings common in knees of young competitive alpine skiers

Published: Tue, 16 Jun 2020 10:08:22 EDT

Bony lesions on the lower part of the thigh bone near the knee are a common but benign finding on MRI in young alpine skiers and should not be confused with more serious conditions, according to a new study.

Study demonstrates feasibility of hologram technology in liver tumor ablation

Published: Mon, 15 Jun 2020 09:27:37 EDT

Data from one of the first clinical uses of augmented reality guidance with electromagnetically tracked tools shows that the technology may help doctors quickly, safely, and accurately deliver targeted liver cancer treatments, according to new research.

Clinical updates for diagnostic ultrasound during coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic

Published: Thu, 11 Jun 2020 10:47:59 EDT

Radiologists recommend a number of applied updates to the workflow of diagnostic ultrasound to prevent nosocomial transmission of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to frontline US service providers: patient and visitor screening, segregation and monitoring of staff, scan vetting, strict protocol adherence, and more.

Improved MRI scans could aid in development of arthritis treatments

Published: Tue, 09 Jun 2020 12:29:08 EDT

An algorithm which analyses MRI images and automatically detects small changes in knee joints over time could be used in the development of new treatments for arthritis.

Fluorescence bioimaging: Near-infrared fluorescence imaging of living subjects

Published: Thu, 04 Jun 2020 11:16:25 EDT

Scientists can monitor biomolecular processes in live tissue by noninvasive optical methods, such as fluorescence imaging. However, the fluorescent dyes used for that purpose are often rather unstable, and photobleaching, lack of specificity, and poor pharmacokinetics are recurrent issues. Scientists have now developed a molecular shield that stabilizes near-infrared fluorescent dyes and enhances their functionality.

Interventional radiologists modify protocol for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic

Published: Wed, 03 Jun 2020 13:25:54 EDT

Radiologists who perform cross-sectional interventional procedures can take several steps to minimize the risks to patients and radiology personnel, including screening referred patients to decide which procedures can be postponed, using appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), minimizing the number of people involved in procedures, preserving PPE when possible, and applying proper room and equipment cleaning measures.
