Abstract:
Magnetic induction tomography (MIT) is a medical imaging technique that uses magnetic fields to image the electrical properties of the human body. In this work, a numerical model has been described and used to simulate MIT systems. A reconstruction algorithm, based on the sensitivity matrix method, has been used to reconstruct images of the internal conductivity distributions of samples, from simulated and experimental measurements. Images of conductivity contrasts of the magnitude encountered in human body have been successfully reconstructed. An initial investigation has made into wave propagation delays in MIT.
