Success for IPEM journal authors at IOP Publishing’s ‘top-cited paper awards’

Physics in Medicine & Biology

For the fourth consecutive year, IOP Publishing (IOPP)  is celebrating the significance of Chinese research with its ‘top-cited paper awards’, and once again a host of IPEM PMB and PMEA authors have been selected to receive an award. 

The successful papers/authors from PMB and PMEA are as follows: 


  1. Computer-aided detection of small intestinal ulcer and erosion in wireless capsule endoscopy images Shanhui Fan et al 2018 Phys. Med. Biol. 63 165001
  2. Super-resolution reconstruction of MR image with a novel residual learning network algorithm Jun Shi et al 2018 Phys. Med. Biol. 63 085011 
  3. Radiogenomics of hepatocellular carcinoma: multiregion analysis-based identification of prognostic imaging biomarkers by integrating gene data-a preliminary study Wei Xia et al 2018 Phys. Med. Biol. 63 035044 
  4. Tumor co-segmentation in PET/CT using multi-modality fully convolutional neural network Xiangming Zhao et al 2019 Phys. Med. Biol. 64 015011 
  5. Computer-aided diagnosis of lung cancer: the effect of training data sets on classification accuracy of lung nodules Jing Gong et al 2018 Phys. Med. Biol. 63 035036 
  6. Intra-tumoural heterogeneity characterization through texture and colour analysis for differentiation of non-small cell lung carcinoma subtypes Yuan Ma et al 2018 Phys. Med. Biol. 63 165018 
  7. A modified microdosimetric kinetic model for relative biological effectiveness calculation Yizheng Chen et al 2018 Phys. Med. Biol. 63 015008 
  8. New photoplethysmogram indicators for improving cuffless and continuous blood pressure estimation accuracy Wan-Hua Lin et al 2018 Physiol. Meas. 39 025005 
  9. A deep learning approach for fetal QRS complex detection Wei Zhong et al 2018 Physiol. Meas. 39 045004 
  10. A comparison of entropy approaches for AF discrimination Chengyu Liu et al 2018 Physiol. Meas. 39 074002 
  11. Combining deep neural networks and engineered features for cardiac arrhythmia detection from ECG recordings Shenda Hong et al 2019 Physiol. Meas. 40 054009 

The awards are presented to corresponding authors from China who are in the top one per cent of the most-cited articles published within IOPP’s portfolio of journals between 2018 and 2020. 

Elaine Tham, associate director (APAC & Partnerships) at IOP Publishing, said: “China’s research strength is clear from their output of influential science papers and these awards enable us to recognise and support that success. Congratulations to the authors – having their work extensively referenced by others demonstrates that it is making a significant contribution to the global body of knowledge.”
