Our Journal - Cancer Imaging

Cancer Imaging Impact factor is 3.153.

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.

2019 Abstract Book

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.

New technique offers higher resolution molecular imaging and analysis

Published: Thu, 28 May 2020 09:46:24 EDT

A new approach could help researchers understand more complicated biomolecular interactions and characterize cells and diseases at the single-molecule level.

Clues to COVID-19 in the brain uncovered in new study

Published: Wed, 27 May 2020 10:50:49 EDT

A study reviewing neuroimaging and neurological symptoms in patients with COVID-19 may shed light on the virus's impact on the central nervous system.

Increased usability and precision in vascular imaging

Published: Tue, 26 May 2020 13:15:33 EDT

Researchers have developed a new X-ray contrast agent. The contrast agent is easier to use and distributes into all blood vessels more reliably, increasing the precision of vascular imaging. This reduces the number of animals required in research experiments.

New double-contrast technique picks up small tumors on MRI

Published: Mon, 25 May 2020 11:56:42 EDT

Early detection of tumors is extremely important in treating cancer. A new technique offers a significant advance in using magnetic resonance imaging to pick out even very small tumors from normal tissue.

Retinal texture could provide early biomarker of Alzheimer's disease

Published: Thu, 14 May 2020 16:42:54 EDT

Biomedical engineers have devised a new imaging device capable of measuring both the thickness and texture of the various layers of the retina. The advance could be used to detect a biomarker of Alzheimer's disease, potentially offering a widespread early warning system for the disease.

Unlocking the gate to the millisecond CT

Published: Thu, 14 May 2020 13:17:25 EDT

Researchers have developed a new multi-beam method for conducting CT scans that improve image quality whilst drastically cutting the required time to one millisecond.

Signs of fetal alcohol syndrome detected in womb

Published: Wed, 13 May 2020 17:11:28 EDT

New images reveal the earliest impairments to nonhuman primate fetal brain development due to alcohol ingested by the mother, in a study involving rhesus macaques. Magnetic resonance imaging showed impairments to brain growth during the third trimester of pregnancy, even though the fetus was exposed to alcohol only during the first trimester.

New imaging tool helps researchers see extent of Alzheimer's early damage

Published: Wed, 13 May 2020 08:18:14 EDT

New imaging technology allows scientists to see the widespread loss of brain synapses in early stages of Alzheimer's disease, a finding that one day may help aid in drug development, according to a new study.

AI techniques in medical imaging may lead to incorrect diagnoses

Published: Tue, 12 May 2020 13:45:41 EDT

Machine learning and AI are highly unstable in medical image reconstruction, and may lead to false positives and false negatives, a new study suggests.

Scientists show MRI predicts the efficacy of a stem cell therapy for brain injury

Published: Tue, 12 May 2020 13:45:08 EDT

Scientists have demonstrated the promise of applying magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to predict the efficacy of using human neural stem cells to treat a brain injury -- a first-ever 'biomarker' for regenerative medicine that could help personalize stem cell treatments for neurological disorders and improve efficacy.
