Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) Instrumentation In Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) spatial distribution of electrical conductivity or Resistivity within

a domain is reconstructed from the surface potentials developed by injecting electrical current (Figure 1). An EIT system, generally, consists of EIT instrumentation, practical phantom with electrodes and a PC with image reconstruction algorithm. EIT instrumentation (Figure 2) consists of a constant current source, signal processing unit and voltage measuring devices or circuits. A low frequency constant amplitude alternating current is injected to the object under test using a constant current source and the boundary voltages are measured by a voltage measuring instrument (Figure 2). The conductivity distribution is reconstructed from the boundary voltage data using an image reconstruction algorithm in a PC.
