Using InCites responsibly: a guide to interpretation and good practice

A Gray & R Price
This guide has been created by bibliometric practitioners to support other users of InCites and promote a community of informed and responsible use. The recommendations in this document may be more suited to other academic sector users, but the authors hope that other users may also benefit from the suggestions. The guide aims to provide plain-English definitions, key strengths and weaknesses and some practical application tips for some of the most commonly-used indicators available in...

Visual augmentation for virtual environments in surgical training

Fani Deligianni
Augmented reality is an important tool for surgical training and skills assessment. The use of computer simulation, particularly the reliance on patient specific data for building realistic models both in terms of biomechanical fidelity and photorealism has attracted extensive interests in recent years. For example, by fusing real bronchoscopy video with 3D tomographic data with the same patient, it is possible to generate photorealistic models that allow high fidelity, patient specific bronchoscope simulation. In order...

Hand gesture recognition for minimally invasive surgery.

Rachel Christina King
Laparoscopic surgery, a form of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), presents many challenges to surgeons in terms of instrument control, manual dexterity, and hand-eye coordination. The current training and assessment regime is subjective and there is an increasing demand for objective measurement of surgical skills. Existing research into laparoscopic surgery reveals many psychomotor challenges to the surgeon, highlighting the importance of adequate training and assessment of laparoscopic skills. This thesis addresses the problem of objective assessment...

MR velocity restoration for consistent myocardial contractility analysis

Andrew Huntbatch
Changes in cardiac structure and contractile performance are key indicators for the early detection of heart disease, the leading cause of premature death in the western world. Accurate assessment of the low-level function of the contractile tissue of the heart, the myocardium, has the potential to provide a valuable tool for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, and key to this process are techniques to accurately measure in vivo tissue motion across the...

Climate change and the human-made water cycle: Implications for the UK water sector

N Voulvoulis & C Zogheib
Climate change is already happening, and the UK’s climate will continue to change as a result of greenhouse gas emissions, with the long-term resilience of its infrastructure at risk. The water sector cannot adapt to the challenges of climate change in isolation, as policy effects in one sector will have indirect effects in others. Current demand pressures and reductions in abstraction licences – rights to draw water – are causing supply-demand deficits and this is...

Uptake and metabolism of four isomers of dinitrotoluene in A. thaliana and their sequestration in feeding aphids: a phytoremediation perspective

Numrah Nisar
Plants, being sessile, have wide variety of metabolic pathways to detoxify hazardous compounds therefore ensuring the success of phytoremediation of a wide variety of xenobiotics. One such a compound is dinitrotoluene (DNT) that is available as a mixture of six different isomers. Phytoremediation of DNTs is a cost effective, eco friendly and preferable approach compared to commercially available chemical and physical remediation systems. DNTs are toxic to plants at higher concentrations, however lower concentrations are...

Quantitative imaging of plasmid DNA in human airway epithelial cells following non-viral gene transfer

Charanjit Singh
The UK CF Gene Therapy Consortium is interested in non-viral gene therapy for cystic fibrosis (CF). To provide insight into the intracellular bottlenecks plasmid DNA (pDNA) encounters on its way to the nuclei of airway epithelial cells, I sought to quantitatively describe the intracellular fate of non-virally transferred pDNA using a clinically relevant human airway epithelial cell air-liquid-interface (ALI) model. Plasmid DNA was tagged with nanogold particles or fluorescent quantum dots (QDots) for use in...

Study to support the REFIT evaluation of Directive 2001/42/EC on the assessment of the effects of certain plans and programmes on the environment (SEA Directive) Final report

J McGuinn, L Oulès, P Banfi, A McNeill, S O’Brien, Z Lukakova, W Sheate, S Kolaric & R Sadauskis
This evaluation study supports the evaluation of Directive 2001/42/EC on the assessment of the effects of certain public plans and programmes on the environment (SEA Directive) as part of the European Commission's Regulatory Fitness Check and Performance (REFIT) programme. This assessment is based on five evaluation criteria: effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value. The study found that the SEA Directive brings considerable benefits to the EU, contributing to wider goals on sustainable development...

The arthroplasty candidacy help engine tool to select candidates for hip and knee replacement surgery: development and economic modelling

A Price, J Smith, H Dakin, S Kang, P Eibich, J Cook, A Gray, K Harris, R Middleton, E Gibbons, E Benedetto, S Smith, J Dawson, R Fitzpatrick, A Sayers, L Miller, E Marques, R Gooberman-Hill, A Blom, A Judge, N Arden, D Murray, S Glyn-Jones, K Barker, A Carr … & D Beard
Background There is no good evidence to support the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in setting preoperative thresholds for referral for hip and knee replacement surgery. Despite this, the practice is widespread in the NHS. Objectives/research questions Can clinical outcome tools be used to set thresholds for hip or knee replacement? What is the relationship between the choice of threshold and the cost-effectiveness of surgery? Methods A systematic review identified PROMs used to assess...

Tidal modelling with Thetis: preliminary English Channel benchmarking

Z Goss, S Warder, A Angeloudis, S Kramer, A Avdis & M Piggott
This report describes the application and benchmarking of the Thetis coastal ocean model for tidal modelling, and makes use of a test case based upon the English Channel. Comparisons are made between model predictions and tide gauge data at a number of locations across the English Channel. A preliminary investigation of the impact of mesh resolution and bathymetry data is given. A demonstration is also provided of Thetis’s ability to use adjoint technology to optimise...

Lightmasks that prevent dark adaptation for non-central diabetic macular oedema: the CLEOPATRA RCT

S Sivaprasad, J Vasconcelos, H Holmes, C Murphy, J Kelly, P Hykin & A Prevost
Excerpt Background: Hypoxia may contribute to the development and progression of diabetic macular oedema (DMO) and diabetic retinopathy. The photoreceptors are the most metabolically active cells in the retina and the rod photoreceptors consume the maximal amount of oxygen for dark adaptation. Therefore, a lightmask emitting 500- to 505-nm light and worn at night during sleep may prevent rod-related dark adaptation and, thereby, reduce the retinal oxygen consumption and improve or prevent progression of DMO...

Chalk regional groundwater models and their applicability to site scale processes

Simon John Parker
Chalk is an important aquifer in England. Because of the highly permeable nature of the subsurface, groundwater moves relatively quickly, so that source area for a Chalk stream can change significantly on a seasonal basis. This research looks at both the hydrogeology at site scale and regional scale ground- water models in the Berkshire downs. At the regional scale, two conceptualizations of aquifer transmissivity, a zone-based approach and an interpolated transmissivity field approach, were implemented...

Assessing the economic and environmental value of carbon capture and utilisation in the UK

A Hankin, G Guillen Gosalbez, G Kelsall, N Mac Dowell, N Shah, S Weider & K Brophy
• As a signatory to the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement, the UK has committed to an ambitious transformation of its economy. • Decarbonisation of the UK’s economy must be a priority, but carbon-based fuels and platform chemicals will remain important to the global economy; their production from captured carbon dioxide and renewable energy can support this industrial need. • In this Briefing Paper, we report on results of a systematic procedure developed to assess...
