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 for 2016 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.

Nanotechnology helps rewarm fast-frozen donor tissue, enabling long-term viability

Published: Mon, 21 Aug 2017 10:56:42 EDT

Researchers have developed a new method for thawing frozen tissue that may enable long-term storage and subsequent viability of tissues and organs for transplantation. The method, called nanowarming, prevents tissue damage during the rapid thawing process that would precede a transplant.

Our brains do change from early to mid-adulthood

Published: Mon, 21 Aug 2017 10:54:45 EDT

Scientists have been able to accurately estimate an individual's age from their brain structure. The researchers found that significant microstructural changes occur in the brain from early to mid-adulthood. Until now, scientists thought that brain structure was relatively stable during this period of life, and this is one of the first studies to show that our brains continue to change throughout our early and mid-adulthood.

New Bioimaging technique is fast and economical

Published: Fri, 18 Aug 2017 16:24:30 EDT

A new approach to optical imaging makes it possible to quickly and economically monitor multiple molecular interactions in a large area of living tissue -- such as an organ or a small animal; technology that could have applications in medical diagnosis, guided surgery, or pre-clinical drug testing.

Study of California kidney cancer shows declining incidence, end of a trend

Published: Fri, 18 Aug 2017 14:03:19 EDT

A study of kidney cancer incidence in California over 25 years is the first report to demonstrate that the rising rate of kidney cancer seen in the US over the past two decades may have ended.

Lasers used to detect risk of heart attack and stroke

Published: Fri, 18 Aug 2017 09:36:16 EDT

Patients at risk of heart attacks and strokes may be spotted earlier thanks to a diagnosis tool that uses near-infrared light to identify high-risk arterial plaques.

New terahertz imaging approach could speed up skin cancer detection

Published: Thu, 17 Aug 2017 14:17:36 EDT

Researchers have developed a new terahertz imaging approach that, for the first time, can acquire micron-scale resolution images while retaining computational approaches designed to speed up image acquisition.

Super-photostable fluorescent labeling agent for super-resolution microscopy

Published: Thu, 17 Aug 2017 14:17:11 EDT

Chemists have developed a super-photostable fluorescent dye, PhoxBright 430 (PB430), to visualize cellular ultrastructure by super resolution microscopy. The exceptional photostability of this new dye enables continuous STED imaging and together with its ability to fluorescently label proteins, PB430 demonstrates its use in the 3D construction and multicolor imaging of biological structures.

Early rotator cuff surgery yields good long-term outcomes

Published: Thu, 17 Aug 2017 13:59:59 EDT

Early surgery to repair tears of one of the shoulder rotator cuff muscles provides lasting improvement in strength, function, and other outcomes, reports a study.

Noninvasive retinal imaging may improve early detection of Alzheimer's disease

Published: Thu, 17 Aug 2017 09:27:29 EDT

Alzheimer's disease (AD) represents the leading cause of dementia worldwide. Currently, challenges in making an early and definitive diagnosis of AD limit opportunities to intervene with disease-modifying therapies before substantial neurodegeneration occurs. Neurodegeneration in AD has been attributed to the accumulation of amyloid-beta proteins in the central nervous system, and amyloid-beta may be present up to 20 years prior to the onset of cognitive symptoms. Recently, noninvasive imaging techniques have been developed that can accurately detect and monitor amyloid-beta deposition in the retinas of rodent AD models. The use of similar techniques to assess amyloid-beta accumulation in human retinas may enable significant advances in early detection and treatment of AD.

In a nutshell: Walnuts activate brain region involved in appetite control

Published: Wed, 16 Aug 2017 18:12:59 EDT

Double-blind test bolsters observational data that walnuts promote feelings of fullness. Results provide a quantitative measure for testing other compounds' ability to control appetite, including potential medications for the treatment of obesity.
