Mathematical Problems in Electrical Impedance Imaging

Electrical impedance imaging systems are being developed for medical diagnostics, detection of cracks in metals, and imaging of multiphase flow. Such systems work by applying currents to electrodes at the surface of the body, measuring the resulting voltages, and reconstructing the electrical impedance in the interior of the body. The presentation will focus on some mathematical problems arising in the design of such systems and in the processing of the data they measure.
