Paper Abstract

We have proposed a new method of image reconstruction in EIT (electrical impedance tomography). In EIT, we usually use boundary current and voltage measurements to provide the information about the spatial distribution of electrical impedance or resistivity. One of the major problems in EIT has been the inaccessibility of internal voltage or current data in finding the internal impedance values. The new method uses internal current density data measured by NMR imaging technique. By knowing the internal current density, we can improve the accuracy of the impedance images.
