Time-difference phantom experiment
Time-difference EIT(tdEIT) is to recover the time change of conductivity distribution using the time change of voltage data.
User made java GUI can control Sciospec EIT device to perform tdEIT experiments.
To perform tdEIT, we put insulating glass in the circular saline tank. The reference voltage data is measured in the absence of the glass. The author made reconstruction algorithm is used to locate the position of the glass.
Lung ventilation imaging using EIT with Sciospec
Pulmonary activity can be visualized with Sciospec 16-channel EIT device by using time-difference imaging technique.
Software can easily control Sciospec device to perform real-time image reconstruction. The following images are of the software made by C#.
FER algorithm is used for the image reconstruction. See the paper ‘A fidelity-embedded regularization method for robust electrical impedance tomography’ for details.
