DETERMINATION OF OPTIMUM INJECTED CURRENT PATTERNS IN ELECTRICAL-IMPEDANCE TOMOGRAPHY

1995-08-01
The problem of finding the optimum current under different constraints in electrical impedance tomography is cast into a non-linear optimization problem. Optimum currents are investigated for a two-dimensional cylindrical body with a concentric or an eccentric inhomogeneity under the constraints of constant dissipated power and constant total injected current. For a concentric inhomogeneity, it is shown that the opposite drive results in a better distinguishability than the cosine current pattern under the constant-injected-current constraint. The results for the concentric case are extended to the eccentric case directly using the properties of the conformal transformation and of the constraints involved. Distinguishability and the minimum detectable object size achieved by the optimized currents are compared with the ones achieved by the cosine current pattern for conductivity distributions with the concentric and eccentric inhomogeneity.

A FAST IMAGE-RECONSTRUCTION ALGORITHM FOR ELECTRICAL-IMPEDANCE TOMOGRAPHY
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (IOP Publishing, 1994-05-01)
In this paper, we propose a fast algorithm for the reconstruction of the conductivity perturbation DELTAsigma about a known conductivity variation sigma0. The method is based on the minimization of a quadratic functional subject to linear constraints, where the existence of a unique solution is guaranteed. The algorithm developed for this purpose is iterative and each iteration is composed of a simple matrix multiplication. The validity of this method is illustrated with several examples.
DETERMINATION OF THE BOUNDARY OF AN OBJECT INSERTED INTO A WATER-FILLED CYLINDER

In order to circumvent the electrode position determination problem in static electrical impedance tomography, it is possible to insert the object to be imaged into a water-filled cylinder on which the electrodes are at fixed and known positions. It has previously been shown that if the boundary of the internally placed object and the conductivity of the salty water in the cylinder are known, then a significant improvement in the conductivity image of the object is obtained. An algorithm for finding the bou...
A METHOD FOR COMPARATIVE-EVALUATION OF EIT ALGORITHMS USING A STANDARD DATA SET

The point spread function (PSF) is the most widely used tool for quantifying the spatial resolution of imaging systems. However, prerequisites for the proper use of this tool are linearity and space invariance. Because EIT is non-linear it is only possible to compare different reconstruction algorithms using a standard data set. In this study, the FEM is used to generate simulation data, which are used to investigate the non-linear behaviour of EIT, the space dependence of its PSF and its capability of reso...
