The paper presents an application of Electrical Impedance Tomography to detect a buried object. This application leads to the inverse problem of EIT on an unbounded domain. Here a bounded domain was used instead of an unbounded one. This domain was divided into three regions in such way that the potential distribution was unchanged when compared to that in an unbounded domain. An optimal current pattern was estimated and the corresponding sensitivity was calculated.
