Paper Abstract

Biomagnetic reconstruction of a current distribution located in a three-dimensional space from the sampled magnetic field was performed. Simulations were performed on a circular current distribution. The magnetic field was sampled in a planar surface using the Biot-Savart Law. A cubic volume space was selected as a reconstruction space. It was divided into cubic voxels. Reconstruction was performed to compute the current density in each voxel by applying pseudo-inverse technique. The initial reconstruction showed a rough image of the current buried in the noise. The image was enhanced by thresholding of background noise. The final image showed a good resemblance to the original shape.
