Abstract
Magnetic Induction Tomography (MIT) is an imaging
technique for passive electrical properties used in industrial and
biological imaging. In the case of biological purposes, high
resolution measures of the magnetic field induced in the body and
the ability to acquire data at several points along its border with
several incident field angles are two major technological objectives
of MIT. This paper presents a new prototype that allows moving
sensing coils and the body in analysis. Its characterization and
dimensioning are presented along with preliminary acquisitions
results, benchmarking some of the known cancelation techniques for
a moving prototype.
