The utilisation of electrical impedance measurements within the medical profession has broadened greatly since the advent of blood flow analysis in the 1950s. This thesis considers some of the important electrical impedance measurements currently used at a research stage in medicine, with specific emphasis on three major application. These are: the analysis of human body composition, particularly the quantification of body fat, the analysis of gastric motility using electrical impedance epigastrography and electrical impedance tomographic imaging of the abdomen in order to monitor gastric motility.
