Featured Article: CT during celiac artery angiography for localization of clinically suspected small insulinomas

New Content ItemUsing non-invasive imaging modalities, small insulinomas can prove quite difficult to localize in the pancreas. This can impede on deciding the type and extent of resection that is required to treat the tumor and therefore preoperative localization of the tumor is imperative to enable optimal treatment.

In this study, F. Duan et al. assessed the performance of using CT during celiac artery angiography in helping to diagnose and localize small insulinomas. This process can then help to guide pancreatic resection.

Aims and scope

Cancer Imaging is an open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing original articles, reviews and editorials written by expert international radiologists working in oncology.

The journal encompasses CT, MR, PET, ultrasound, radionuclide and multimodal imaging in all kinds of malignant tumours, plus new developments, techniques and innovations.

Featured: How I read Cancer Imaging Studies: The Master Class Series

Surprisingly, in contrast to the literature regarding the outcomes of imaging, the methods that underpin the generation of an imaging report and how to communicate the findings cogently to referring clinicians remain something of a ‘black box'. In this thematic series, experts across various modalities detail their approach to reporting scans in particular disease settings.

Editor's quote

A major focus of Prof Rodney Hicks' (Co-Editor-in-Chief of Cancer Imaging) clinical research has been to assess the impact of PET on patient management and prognostic stratification. 

R Hicks

"A few years ago I changed the name of my department from Diagnostic Imaging to Cancer Imaging since it occurred to me that little of what we do is diagnostic.  Increasingly, the role of imaging in cancer is in selecting, planning and monitoring treatment.  The challenge of imaging science is to establish our techniques as prognostic and predictive biomarkers and to show that our results improve patient outcomes"

Prof Rodney Hicks, Co-Editor-in-Chief, Cancer Imaging
