Özet

Magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) is a new medical imaging technique which combines boundary potential measurements of electrical impedance tomography (EIT) and internal current density distribution obtained from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to produce conductivity images having high spatial resolution and accuracy. In this study, a novel method of reconstructing images of anisotropic conductivity tensor distribution inside an electrically conducting subject is proposed for MREIT. The technique is evaluated on simulated data obtained from a model having anisotropic and isotropic conductivity distributions. Noise performance of the algorithm is also evaluated.
