Magnetic resonance--electrical impedance tomography

, : Magnetic resonance--electrical impedance tomography. Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1258(4), May 28

A magnetic resonance-electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) technique for determining the local conductivity of an object. The MREIT technique combines magnetic resonance current density imaging (MRCDI) with electrical impedance tomography (EIT) in order to obtain the benefits of both procedures. The MREIT technique includes the step of current density imaging by performing the steps of placing a series of electrodes around the patient or object to be imaged for the application of current, placing the patient or object in a strong magnetic field, and applying an MR imaging sequence which is synchronized with the application of current through the electrodes. Next, the electric potentials of the surface of the object or patient are measured simultaneously with the MR imaging sequence, as in EIT. Then, the MR imaging signal containing information about the current and the measured potential are processed to calculate the internal conductivity (impedance) of the object or patient.
