UCL University College London Eprints
UCL Eprints collects the work of UCL researchers and makes it freely available over the web, helping the worldwide scholarly community to discover UCL research. Institutional repositories like UCL Eprints complement the traditional academic publishing and scholarly communications processes. They raise the visibility of research and help to maximise its impact. UCL researchers are encouraged to deposit a copy of each journal article, conference paper, working paper, and any other research output, in the UCL Eprints at the earliest opportunity, ensuring that their research reaches as wide an audience as possible.
Multi-modal pharmacokinetic modelling for DCE-MRI: using diffusion weighted imaging to constrain the local arterial input function - Hamy, V; Modat, M; Dikaios, N; Cleary, J; Punwani, S; Shipley, R; Ourselin, S; Atkinson, D; Melbourne, A
In this work we hypothesise that diffusion weighted imaging data may help constrain the fitting of pharmacokinetic models to dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI data. Parameters related to tissue perfusion in the intra-voxel incoherent motion (IVIM) modelling of diffusion weighted MRI provide local information on how tissue is likely to perfuse that can be utilised to guide DCE modelling via local modification of the arterial input function (AIF).
Competitive funding and structures for public health research in European countries. - McCarthy, M; Conceição, C; Grimaud, O; Katreniakova, Z; Saliba, A; Sammut, M; Narkauskaité, L
Introduction: The European Union is giving increasing emphasis to research as a driver for innovation and economic development. The European collaborative study PHIRE (Public Health Innovation and Research in Europe) investigated the funding and structures of public health research at national level in European countries.
Impact of innovations in national public health markets in Europe. - McCarthy, M; Alexanderson, K; Voss, M; Conceição, C; Grimaud, O; Narkauskaité, L; Katreniakova, Z; Saliba, A; Sammut, M
Social innovations can contribute to health and wellbeing. PHIRE (Public Health Innovation and Research in Europe) investigated the impacts at national level of innovation projects funded by the European Union Public Health Programme.
National action for European public health research. - McCarthy, M; Zeegers Paget, D; Barnhoorn, F
Introduction: Research and innovation are the basis for improving health and health services. The European Union (EU) supports research through multi-annual programmes. Public Health Innovation and Research in Europe (PHIRE) investigated how European countries cooperate for action in public health research.
Public Health Innovation and Research in Europe: introduction to the supplement. - McCarthy, M; Zeegers Paget, D
Background: PHIRE (Public Health Innovation and Research in Europe) was developed for the national member associations and individual researchers of the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) to engage collectively with the health research agenda in Europe. It was co-funded by the European Commission's Directorate for Health and Consumers within the EU Health Programme. It was coordinated by EUPHA in a partnership of eight organizations. This article introduces the Supplement in the European Journal of Public Health presenting the results of PHIRE. Methods: PHIRE used mixed methods to collect data across 30 European countries (European Union 27 plus Iceland, Norway and...
