Distinguishability for magnetic resonance-electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT)

Phys Med Biol. 2007 Jan 21;52(2):375-87. doi: 10.1088/0031-9155/52/2/005. Epub 2006 Dec 29.


A distinguishability measure is defined for magnetic resonance-electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT) based on magnetic flux density measurements. This general definition is valid for 2D and 3D structures of any shape. As a specific case, a 2D cylindrical body with concentric inhomogeneity is considered and a bound of the distinguishability is analytically formulated. Distinguishabilities obtained with potential and magnetic flux density measurements are compared.
