|N.B. This chapter describes works, where the calculation of the inverse solution in impedance tomography is based on the generally used algorithm suggested by Brown and Segar (1987). However, subsequent research of Kauppinen, Hyttinen and Malmivuo (2006) has shown, that their solution is not correct. Therefore the information given in this chapter on the measurement sensitivity distribution in impedance tomography is erroneous.|
Fig. 26.1 Neighboring method of impedance data collection illustrated for a cylindrical volume conductor and 16 equally spaced electrodes.
(A) The first four voltage measurements for the set of 13 measurements are shown.
(B) Another set of 13 measurements is obtained by changing the current feeding electrodes.
