Magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography

Summary

MREIT is a new medical imaging method that allows the electrical conductivity of tissue to be directly measured in the MR scanner. It has high potential for implant design, monitors and understanding of electrical behaviour in the body such as neural and cardiac function or wound healing.

Supervisor

Professor Alistair McEwan.

Research location

Electrical and Information Engineering

Program type

Masters/PHD

Synopsis

In this project the student will develop a model to simulate a range of improvements and scenarios in MREIT. The scope includes setup and analysis with phantoms and subjects. It requires a good background in electromagnetics and nuclear magnetic resonance.
