Cancer Imaging is the official journal of ICIS, an open access, peer-reviewed journal published by BioMed Central. Original articles, as well as reviews and editorials written by international imaging experts with a subspecialty focus on oncology, are published regularly online;  sign up for alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest articles.

Cancer Imaging Impact factor is 2.404.

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.

All articles published in Cancer Imaging are included in PubMed, the most widely used biomedical bibliographic database service, as well as Embase, EmCare, Google Scholar, MEDLINE, Science Citation Index and Scopus. The full text of all research articles is deposited in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature.

Fetal MRI can reliably spot holoprosencephaly as early as 18 gestational weeks

Published: Mon, 21 May 2018 13:15:39 EDT

Fetal magnetic resonance imaging can reliably spot holoprosencephaly as early as 18 gestational weeks, providing an opportunity to counsel families earlier in their pregnancy, according to new research.

Nanoparticles derived from tea leaves destroy lung cancer cells: Quantum dots have great potential

Published: Mon, 21 May 2018 09:27:20 EDT

Nanoparticles derived from tea leaves inhibit the growth of lung cancer cells, destroying up to 80 percent of them, new research has shown. The team made the discovery while they were testing out a new method of producing a type of nanoparticle called quantum dots. These are tiny particles which measure less than 10 nanometers. A human hair is 40,000 nanometers thick.

MR spectroscopy imaging reveals effects of targeted treatment of mutant IDH1 gliomas

Published: Fri, 18 May 2018 16:40:50 EDT

Using a novel imaging method, a research team is investigating the mechanisms behind a potential targeted treatment for a subtype of the deadly brains tumors called gliomas.

Diamond 'spin-off' tech could lead to low-cost medical imaging and drug discovery tools

Published: Fri, 18 May 2018 14:10:32 EDT

An international team has discovered how to exploit defects in nanoscale and microscale diamonds and potentially enhance the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear magnetic resonance systems while eliminating the need for their costly and bulky superconducting magnets.

Diagnosing breast cancer with an imaging pill

Published: Wed, 16 May 2018 12:37:09 EDT

For women, mammograms are a sometimes uncomfortable, but necessary, annual ritual. But this procedure doesn't always provide accurate results, and it exposes women to X-rays. In a new study, scientists report that they have developed a non-invasive 'disease screening pill' that can make cancerous tumors light up when exposed to near-infrared light in mice without using radiation.

Clues to treating psychoses in mental health patients

Published: Wed, 16 May 2018 12:36:47 EDT

Researchers recently found evidence that boosting how well people at risk for psychosis learn from positive and negative feedback could potentially keep psychosis at bay. The team also found that brain scans using functional magnetic resonance imaging, coupled with behavioral measures, could provide markers for the diagnosis of psychosis risk. Researchers hope findings will help mental health professionals to understand how to better treat their patients with psychoses and prevent the onset of psychosis.

3D images of cancer cells in the body

Published: Tue, 15 May 2018 10:56:57 EDT

Making tumor cells glow: medical physicists have developed a new method that can generate detailed three-dimensional images of the body's interior. This can be used to more closely investigate the development of cancer cells in the body.

How Ebola affects the eye: Study provides further insight into

Published: Tue, 15 May 2018 10:56:24 EDT

A new study identifies the specific characteristics of Ebola retinal lesions, which provide further clues as to how the virus travels to the retina and causes damage.

Brain size mediates the association between height and cognitive ability

Published: Mon, 14 May 2018 09:55:39 EDT

Several studies have found that height and general cognitive ability, or intelligence, are positively associated. A recent study reveals a biological factor underlying this relationship: the size of the cerebral cortex.

Gadolinium deposition in the brain not dose dependent

Published: Fri, 11 May 2018 10:24:09 EDT

Investigators have determined that in children receiving gadolinium as a contrast agent to enhance MRI examinations, signal changes attributed solely to deposition of this material in the brain are not dependent on the amount of gadolinium administered but rather these changes are seen in association with other factors such as the presence of brain tumors and treatment using brain irradiation.
