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.

Review series: Ultra-extended field-of-view PET/CT

Every now and then a new technology or idea comes along that turns imaging on its head. This is a series of review articles from developers of ultra-extended field-of-view PET/CT technology, and from early adopters who are starting to leverage features such as dynamic whole-body imaging, ultra-low dose or very rapid scanning protocols.

Call for papers on artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence in Cancer imaging and diagnosis

We are pleased to announce a new cross-journal thematic series on ‘’Artificial intelligence in cancer imaging and diagnosis" to help bring together the latest research on the application of artificial intelligence in this field. Please click here for more information about this series.

The thematic series is now open for submission of original research and review articles. Please click here to submit your manuscript to this series.

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

Master Class SeriesSurprisingly, 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.

Peer Review Taxonomy

This journal is participating in a pilot of NISO/STM's Working Group on Peer Review Taxonomy, to identify and standardize definitions and terminology in peer review practices in order to make the peer review process for articles and journals more transparent. Further information on the pilot is available here.

The following summary describes the peer review process for this journal:

Identity transparency: Single anonymized
Reviewer interacts with: Editor
Review information published: None

We welcome your feedback on this Peer Review Taxonomy Pilot. Please can you take the time to complete this short survey.

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. 

"The last decade has seen amazing changes in the acquisition and processing of imaging data, including new instrumentation and increasing use of artificial intelligence. These have only served to increase the importance of imaging in the diagnosis, staging, treatment selection, and monitoring of cancer. Cancer Imaging seeks to present the latest research and up-to-date reviews in radiology and molecular imaging to keep the multidisciplinary community involved in oncological care abreast of future advances and to maintain a focus on patient-centred care."

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