We develop a statistical criterion for optimal patterns in planar circular electrical impedance tomography. These patterns minimize the total variance of the estimation for the resistance or conductance matrix. It is shown that trigonometric patterns (Isaacson, 1986), originally derived from the concept of distinguishability, are a special case of our(More)
We outfitted cryoprobes with electrodes and used them in conjunction with a multiple channel electrical impedance tomography (EIT) system to record data during freezing experiments in a shallow saline tank. We made measurements using electrodes mounted on the probes and the tank's periphery. Reconstructed images based on both sets of electrodes indicate a(More)
We conducted a short study on 8 volunteer subjects to establish whether physiological changes occurring as a result of the menstrual cycle affect tissue electrical properties. For this study subjects submitted to electrical impedance tomographic breast measurement four times, over two cycles at two different points in the cycle. Statistical analysis based(More)
Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a non-invasive technique that aims to reconstruct images of internal electrical properties of a domain, based on electrical measurements on the periphery. Improvements in instrumentation and numerical modeling have led to three-dimensional (3D) imaging. The availability of 3D modeling and imaging raises the question(More)
Traditionally, image reconstruction in electrical impedance tomography (EIT) has been based on Laplace's equation. However, at high frequencies the coupling between electric and magnetic fields requires solution of the full Maxwell equations. In this paper, a formulation is presented in terms of the Maxwell equations expressed in scalar and vector(More)
In electrical impedance tomography surface measurements of voltages and currents are recorded and the image reconstruction algorithm uses this set of boundary data to estimate internal electrical properties of the region under investigation. Therefore correct and accurate modelling of the current and voltage distributions (forward model) is an essential(More)
Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) has been used in the recent past for a number of clinical applications. In this work we present recent tomographic and spectroscopic findings for breast imaging from clinical exams completed at Dartmouth. The results presented here are based on 18 normal and 24 abnormal subjects. The participants were classified as(More)
Model-based elastography is fraught with problems owing to the ill-posed nature of the inverse elasticity problem. To overcome this limitation, we have recently developed a novel inversion scheme that incorporates a priori information concerning the mechanical properties of the underlying tissue structures, and the variance incurred during displacement(More)
