In vivo measurements of equivalent resistivities of skull (/spl rho//sub skull/) and brain (/spl rho//sub brain/) are performed for six subjects using an electric impedance tomography (EIT)-based method and realistic models for the head. The classical boundary element method (BEM) formulation for EIT is very time consuming. However, the application of the Sherman-Morrison formula reduces the computation time by a factor of 5. Using an optimal point distribution in the BEM model to optimize its… CONTINUE READING
