2. Using art to help understand the imagery of irritable bowel syndrome and its response to hypnotherapy. Carruthers, Helen; Miller, Vivien; Morris, Julie; Evans, Raymond; Tarrier, Nicholas; Whorwell, Peter. International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, Volume 57, Number 2, April 2009 , pp. 162-173(12) Abstract - A medical artist asked 109 patients if they had an image of their IBS pre- and posthypnotherapy, making precise watercolor paintings of any images described. Results were related to treatment outcome, symptoms, anxiety, depression, and absorption (hypnotizability); 49% of patients had an image, and a wide variety were recorded and painted. Imagery was significantly associated with gender (p < .05), anxiety (p < .05), noncolonic symptomatology (p < .05), and absorption (p = .001); 57.8% of responders compared with 35.5% of nonresponders to hypnotherapy had an image of their disease (p < .05) before treatment, and color images were associated with better outcomes (p = .05) than monochrome ones. All images changed in responders, often becoming more nonspecific in nature. Inquiring about IBS imagery helps to identify potential responders and nonresponders to hypnotherapy and may also provide insights into how patients think about their illness.
3. Advances in Forensic Human Identification. CRC Press, Taylor and Francis Group, published January 2014. Chapter 10 - Image Analysis: Forensic Facial Comparison: Issues and Misconceptions. Evans, R. Abstract - Chapter 10: As crime levels have increased, experts are more frequently called upon to express opinions on aspects of human identification in an attempt to identify either victims or criminals. These experts come from disparate fields such as video analysis, medicine, medical art, anthropology and psychology, to name a few. With the increase in the day-to-day use of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), the comparison of faces from images for forensic identification has become particularly important in the criminal justice system.
