Electrical impedance tomography using a point electrode inverse scheme for complete electrode data

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • For the two dimensional inverse electrical impedance problem in the case of piecewise constant conductivities with the currents injected at adjacent point electrodes and the resulting voltages measured between the remaining electrodes, in [3] the authors proposed a nonlinear integral equation approach that extends a method that has been suggested by Kress and Rundell [10] for the case of perfectly conducting inclusions. As the main motivation for using a point electrode method we emphasized on numerical difficulties arising in a corresponding approach by Eckel and Kress [4, 5] for the complete electrode model. Therefore, the purpose of the current paper is to illustrate that the inverse scheme based on point electrodes can be successfully employed when synthetic data from the complete electrode model are used.
