Original Abstract

In the article, the non-invasive way for images reconstruction of an internal conductivity distribution of the human head tissue is described. This approach is based on the use of the current density distribution obtained from measurements of external magnetic flux density by using magnetic field measurement with the principles of conventional EIT imaging technique. The proposed algorithm enables the detection of biological tissue changes in a head with a high spatial resolution. The algorithm was applied to the several computer simulations representing the detection of skull trauma to demonstrate its feasibility, and to assess the performance of reconstruction process in estimation head tissue conductivity values. The obtained results were presented and compared with the images of conductivity distribution reconstructed by the EIT algorithm. All reconstruction process properties were also discussed.
