The finite element (FE) method has found several applications in emerging imaging modalities, especially microwave imaging which has been shown to be potentially useful in a number of areas including thermal estimation. In monitoring temperature distributions, the biological phenomena of temperature variations of tissue dielectric properties is exploited.(More)
Thermal imaging experiments using electrical impedance tomography (EIT) have been conducted during hyperthermia treatments delivered to two human patients and one animal subject. Coplanar and circumferential arrays of 16 and 32 tin-plated copper electrodes etched on a 0.005" polyimide sheet were used to inject 12.5 KHz current patterns of increasing(More)
An electrical impedance tomography system has been developed and tested for the purpose of thermal imaging. Since impedance changes with temperature, images of impedance subtracted from normothermic baselines will provide a map of temperature data. A system was designed to be operational at 10-50 kHz and to utilize 16 external electrodes around the(More)
Algorithmic methods for estimating complete temperature fields during hyperthermia treatments based on surface and internal electrical measurements are presented. The techniques utilized draw upon impedance imaging concepts, but rather than limit the measurements to positions on the body surface, internal impedance recording sites are allowed. Theoretical(More)
We describe the use of electrical impedance tomography (EIT) for non-invasive thermal imaging in conjunction with a clinical treatment of a superficial scalp lesion utilizing a spiral microstrip antenna. This is our first reported use of EIT with a clinical hyperthermia treatment and perhaps the first world-wide. The thermal measurements recorded during(More)
