Workshop Description:


Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) represents a non-invasive imaging method employed in various fields, reconstructing internal conductivity distributions by measuring electrical impedance at a subject's surface. EIT has garnered significant attention in medical imaging due to its non-radiative nature and real-time imaging capabilities. It finds applications in monitoring lung ventilation, brain imaging, and breast cancer detection, among others. EIT's versatility extends beyond medical domains, proving valuable in industrial processes such as monitoring fluid distribution in pipelines and quality control in manufacturing. However, successful implementation of EIT heavily relies on robust software tools for data analysis and image reconstruction.

Eidors software stands as a pivotal resource in the realm of EIT. It offers a comprehensive platform for data processing, visualization, and image reconstruction. Eidors facilitates the transformation of raw electrical measurements into meaningful visual representations, aiding researchers and practitioners in interpreting data and extracting valuable insights. Its user-friendly interface and compatibility with MATLAB make it an indispensable tool for both novice and experienced users in the field of electrical impedance imaging.


This workshop aims to equip participants with a profound understanding of EIT principles and hands-on experience with the Eidors software. By the end of the workshop, attendees will be proficient in utilizing EIT techniques and leveraging Eidors for practical applications.

Scope and Information for Participants:

The workshop spans over a whole day and encompasses theoretical sessions, practical demonstrations, and interactive exercises. Participants will explore EIT fundamentals, dive into the functionalities of Eidors, engage in simulated experiments, and examine real-world case studies. The workshop will cover image reconstruction techniques, data interpretation, and applications in biomedical and industrial domains.
