A Method and an Algorithm to Reconstruct the Spatial Structure of Current Density Vectors in Magnetocardiography

  • M. A. PriminEmail author

The spatial distribution of parameter values (measured at points of the plane of observation) of the magnetic field of the human heart is associated with the distribution of current density vectors in the plane parallel to the plane of measurements and secant relative to the heart. The inverse problem is solved with the help of the Fourier integral transform. The algorithm is modeled based on real data of magnetometric investigations of the human heart.
