Abstract
Magnetic Induction Tomography (MIT) is an imaging technique that allows mapping the complex conductivity structure of a body. Besides industry, its application to biological tissues has been recently studied. Work was done by the authors in order to project, build and assess a new MIT system for biological purposes. Three distinct areas are investigated: The parameter estimation problem solver, the forward problem solver and the experimental design and dimensioning. In this paper, a description of the main motivations that steered the development of each of these working areas is presented. A theoretical explanation of the overall process and considerations about further work are also depicted.
