In this study, a direct, fast image reconstruction algorithm, based on the fact that equipotential lines are perpendicular to current lines in a volume conductor, is proposed for magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT). The proposed technique is evaluated both on simulated and measured data for conductor and insulator objects.

Current density distribution generated inside a volume conductor by externally applied currents can be calculated by using spatial distribution of its magnetic flux density, . The imaging modality used to reconstruct images of the current density distribution is known as magnetic resonance current density imaging (MRCDI). In MRCDI, spatial distribution of the current-induced magnetic flux density is measured on a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) platform. Calculation of current density distribution from mag...

Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2007-09-02)
Magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) is used to produce high resolution images of true conductivitv distribution. Images are reconstructed by utilising measurements of magnetic flux density distribution and surface potentials. Surface potential measurements are needed to reconstruct true conductivity values. In this study, a novel MREIT reconstruction algorithm is developed to generate conductivity images without utilizing the surface potential measurements. The proposed algorithm and ...

Magnetic Resonance Current Density Imaging (MRCDI) is an imaging modality, which reconstructs electrical current density distribution inside a material by using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques. In this study, a current source with maximum current injection capability of 224.7mA, under 1k Omega resistive load is used. Experiments are performed with a 2D uniform phantom, in which a current steering insulator is inserted. Magnetic flux density distributions are measured, and current density images ...
Magnetic Resonance - Electrical Impedance Tomography (MR-EIT) Research at METU
Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2006-09-01)
Following development of magnetic resonance current density imaging (MRCDI), magnetic resonance - electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT) has emerged as a promising approach to produce high resolution conductivity images. Electric current applied to a conductor results in a potential field and a magnetic flux density distribution. Using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the magnetic flux density distribution can be reconstructed as in MRCDI. The flux density is related to the current density distr...
