Ill-Posedness and Non-Linearity in Electrical Impedance Tomography

  • Chapter

Abstract

Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is a relatively new method of medical imaging which is being investigated by a number of research groups around the world. These studies have lead to the production of at least one prototype piece of apparatus which is currently under clinical evaluation. The development of the associated reconstruction algorithms is also being actively pursued by a number of groups including our own.

Keywords

  • Electrical Impedance Tomography
  • Voltage Measurement
