The data has been collected at three different hospitals in London:

  • Hammersmith Hospital using a Philips 3T system (details of scanner parameters)
  • Guy’s Hospital using a Philips 1.5T system (details of scanner parameters)
  • Institute of Psychiatry using a GE 1.5T system (details of the scan parameters not available at the moment)

The data has been collected as part of the project:

  • IXI – Information eXtraction from Images (EPSRC GR/S21533/02)
