NCI Imaging Community Webinar Series


The NCI Cancer Imaging Program hosts a monthly webinar series that serves as a community gathering point for scientists and clinicians interested in advances in cancer imaging. The webinar series is open to the public and seeks to both showcase current research directions in the field and stimulate interdisciplinary dialog on selected cancer imaging topics. The overall goal of the series is to provide a forum for engagement, raise awareness, and accelerate a path for innovative thinking that has potential to transform research for the benefit of cancer patients and care givers.

Webinar topics of interest will include, but not limited to:

  • New imaging technologies for cancer diagnosis.
  • Advances in nanotechnology to improve cancer diagnosis and treatment.
  • Artificial Intelligence to improve research and clinical imaging workflow.
  • Deep learning integration and analysis of medical imaging data for patient outcome assessment.
  • Intraoperative procedures to improve cancer surgical outcome.
  • Improvements in image guided therapies.
  • Molecular imaging for understanding current concepts in cancer tumor biology.
  • Molecular imaging of cellular therapy response.
  • Imaging data integration with genetics/proteomics/other biological data for understanding cancer biology.

Webinars are typically held on the first Monday of each month from 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST. For more information on the webinar series, please contact
