RESEARCH PROJECTS/ACTIVITIES

A. PhD RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

PhD Thesis Title: Studies on Multifrequency Multifunction Electrical Impedance Tomography (MfMf‐EIT) To Improve Bio‐Impedance Imaging.

Outline: A complete multifrequency multifunction Electrical Impedance Tomography (MfMf-EIT) system is developed to improve multifrequency imaging for biomedical applications. The three main parts of EIT system viz. phantom, instrumentation and algorithm are developed, and the system performance and its image quality have been improved. The MfMf-EIT system is studied with practical phantoms and human subjects and found suitable for biomedical applications.
