Active complex electrode (ACE1) Electrical Impedance Tomography system & anatomically inspired modeling of electrode-skin contact impedance, The
Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is a technique used to image the varying electrical properties of biological tissues or tissue conductivity and permittivity. There are many clinical uses of EIT, but as a newer imaging modality, there is interest in improving hardware to acquire EIT data, creating models of the system and generating high quality images. The two main contributions of this work include: (1) EIT hardware advancements and (2) software modeling to simulate measured human subject data. Specifically, this dissertation includes the design and testing of Colorado State University's ...
