Journal of Tumor Research is an open access, peer-reviewed journal. The journal covers the diagnosis, classification, and treatment of tumors. The major purpose of the journal is to publish clinically relevant information that will directly improve the care of patients with cancers. The journal welcomes original significant and up-to-date articles on all aspects of experimental and clinical oncology.
The journal is using Editorial Tracking for online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Editorial board members of the Journal of Tumor Research or outside experts review manuscripts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by the editor is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript.
Sigmoidoscopy is the procedure to examine the lower part of colon or sigmoid colon by sending an endoscope through patient’s rectum. It can either be flexible or rigid. It can be used to examine the cause of internal bleed, diarrhea etc.

Sonography is the dianostic medical procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to produce visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. It can be used to diagnose a disease and assess the effects of treatment. The images produced are less clear than those of CT and MRI. It has less application in bone and brain imaging.

MRI is a form of medical imaging which uses magnetic fields and radio waves to form images of the body. It is accurate and can provide the imaging of the entire body. Patients with cochlear implants, artificial pacemakers, and metal prostheses are not advised to take an MRI as they may interfere with the magnetic field.

Breast MRI is used along with mammography to screen the cancer in early stages in women with a family history of breast cancer. It is also used in women who have implants or scar tissue that might produce an inaccurate result from a mammogram. It is used to assess the size and location of tumors, spread of tumors to chest wall, any rupture or leakage from implants and response to chemotherapy.
Functional Magnetic Resonance imaging is a technique for measuring brain activity by detecting chances in blood oxygenation and blood flow in response to neural activity. It is used to examine the anatomy of brain, assess the effects of stroke, trauma or degenerative disorders on brain function, monitor the size of tumors and to plan surgery or radiotherapy to brain.

Positron Emission Tomography is medical imaging procedure that that detects the gamma rays emitted by a positron-emitting radioactive tracer injected or placed in the body. It is used to identify the cancer and its metastasis, evaluate cancer therapy in various types of cancers.

Computerized Tomography (CT) uses X-rays to produce the cross-sectional images of the body. It can be used to detect infarcts or hemorrhages in brain, identify the location of tumors, masses and clots, monitor the effectiveness of treatment in cancer.

Bone scan is also called Bone Scintigraphy. It uses a radioactive tracer to detect any bone abnormalities, to monitor cancer that started in the bones or that has spread to the bones from another part of the body and to evaluate metabolic disorders, such as osteomalacia, hyperparathyroidism, osteoporosis and Paget disease.

Diffusion tensor imaging is type of MRI that measures the restricted diffusion of water through a tissue to detect any abnormalities. It is generally used to study the pathways of white mater of brain to study patients with acute stroke or brain tumors, neurodegenerative disorders including multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Barium enema is the X-ray procedure to examine the colon and rectum after filling them with a contrast (barium sulfate) solution. It is performed to diagnose tumors, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome etc. Risks factors are bowel perforations, radiation exposure. Special precautions should be taken for pregnant women and children.

Digital Rectal Exam is also called a prostate exam. It is the manual examination of pelvis and lower gastrointestinal tract by a physician. It is used to diagnose prostate cancer in men, uterine or ovarian cancer in women and rectal cancer. It also helps to evaluate hemorrhoids, diagnose appendicitis.

Pap test is also called pap smear or Papanicolaou test. It involves collection of cells from cervix and vagina using a speculum and testing them for Human Papilloma virus (HPV) and cancer. It is the most useful test to screen cervical cancer. It enables the physician to identify type of cancer and to diagnose HIV.
