This paper describes Rensselaer's ACT 4 electrical impedance tomography system which has been developed for breast cancer detection. ACT 4 acquires electrical impedance data at a set of discrete frequencies in the range from 3.33 kHz to 1 MHz and can support up to 72 electrodes. The instrument applies either voltages or currents to all the electrodes simultaneously and measures the resulting currents and/or voltages. Radiolucent electrode arrays are applied to the compression plates of an x-ray… CONTINUE READING
