*in vitro*measurements from a dry mandible. Reconstructions from limited-angle projection data alone do provide the dentist with three-dimensional information useful for dental implant planning. Furthermore, adding panoramic data to the process improves the reconstruction precision in the direction of the dental arc. The presented imaging modality can be seen as a cost-effective alternative to a full-angle CT scanner.

*difference imaging*, the reconstruction of the conductivity change is based on electrical potential measurements from the exterior boundary of the target before and after the change. In this paper, however, images of the conductivity before and after the change are reconstructed simultaneously based on the two data sets. The key feature of the approach is that the conductivity after the change is parameterized as a linear combination of the initial state and the change. This allows for modeling independently the spatial characteristics of the background conductivity and the change of the conductivity - by separate regularization functionals. The approach also allows in a straightforward way the restriction of the conductivity change to a localized region of interest inside the domain. While conventional difference imaging reconstruction is based on a global linearization of the observation model, the proposed approach amounts to solving a non-linear inverse problem. The feasibility of the proposed reconstruction method is tested experimentally and with a simulation which demonstrates a potential new medical application of electrical impedance tomography: imaging of vocal folds in voice loading studies.

The iterative time reversal scheme also gives an algorithm for approximating a given wave in a subset of the domain without knowing the coefficients of the wave equation.

**143**(1996)] for the ill-posed inverse conductivity problem is presented. The strategy utilizes truncation of the boundary integral equation and the scattering transform. It is shown that this leads to a bound on the error in the scattering transform and a stable reconstruction of the conductivity; an explicit rate of convergence in appropriate Banach spaces is derived as well. Numerical results are also included, demonstrating the convergence of the reconstructed conductivity to the true conductivity as the noise level tends to zero. The results provide a link between two traditions of inverse problems research: theory of regularization and inversion methods based on complex geometrical optics. Also, the procedure is a novel regularized imaging method for electrical impedance tomography.

**163**(2006)]. The method is non-iterative, provides a noise-robust solution of the full nonlinear eit problem, and applies to more general conductivities than previous approaches. In particular, the new algorithm applies to piecewise smooth conductivities. Reconstructions from noisy and non-noisy simulated data from conductivity distributions representing a cross-sections of a chest and a layered medium such as stratified flow in a pipeline are presented. The results suggest that the new method can recover useful and reasonably accurate eit images from data corrupted by realistic amounts of measurement noise. In particular, the dynamic range in medium-contrast conductivities is reconstructed remarkably well.

**ε**is considered, where $U$ is a function on a domain of $\R^d$. Here $A$ is a smoothing linear operator and

**ε**is Gaussian white noise. The data is a realization $m_k$ of the random variable $M_k = P_kA U+P_k$

**ε**, where $P_k$ is a linear, finite dimensional operator related to measurement device. To allow computerized inversion, the unknown is discretized as $U_n=T_nU$, where $T_n$ is a finite dimensional projection, leading to the computational measurement model $M_{kn}=P_k A U_n + P_k$

**ε**. Bayes formula gives then the posterior distribution

$\pi_{kn}(u_n\|\m_{kn})$~ Π _{n} $(u_n)\exp(-\frac{1}{2}$||$\m_{kn} - P_kA u_n$||$\_2^2)$

in $\R^d$,
and the mean $\u_{kn}$:$=\int
u_n \ \pi_{kn}(u_n\|\m_k)\ du_n$ is considered as the reconstruction of $U$. We discuss a systematic way of choosing
prior distributions Π _{n } for all $n\geq n_0>0$ by achieving them as projections of a distribution in a infinite-dimensional limit case.
Such choice of prior distributions is * discretization-invariant* in the sense that Π _{n } represent the same * a priori* information for all $n$ and that the mean $\u_{kn}$ converges to a limit estimate as $k,n$→$\infty$.
Gaussian smoothness priors and wavelet-based Besov space priors are shown to be discretization invariant. In particular, Bayesian inversion in dimension two with $B^1_11$ prior is related to penalizing the $\l^1$ norm of the wavelet coefficients of $U$.
