Mathematical Frameworks for Electromagnetic Tissue Property Imaging using MRI
Recently, there has been marked progress in MR-based electromagnetic property imaging techniques which use MRI to provide cross-sectional images of conductivity, permittivity, and susceptibility
Electromagnetic tissue properties are measured in a macroscopic scale by investigating the sources of the magnetic field perturbations and solving nonlinear inverse problems involving Maxwell's equations. To solve the inverse problem with practical significance, we need deep knowledge on its mathematical formulation of underlying physical phenomena, implementation of image reconstruction algorithms, and practical limitations associated with the measurement sensitivity, specificity, noise, and data acquisition time. This talk is based on our recent book " Electro-Magnetic tissue property MRI" by JK Seo, EJ Woo, K Ulrich, and Y Wang.
