News from the EIT lab:

Dr. Jennifer Mueller was awarded an NIH grant in the fall to develop reconstruction algorithms and study the clinical potential of electrical impedance tomography (EIT) for pediatric lung disease.

The work includes a collaboration with Children's Hospital of Colorado. Reconstruction algorithms for EIT solve an inverse problem known as the inverse conductivity problem. The mathematical methods used in this work include complex geometrical optics solutions and D-bar equations, which lead to a direct (non-iterative) algorithm.

Dr. Mueller will be giving a workshop on Direct Methods at the EIT meeting in Garanoque, Canada this spring, where Ph.D. student Melody Dodd will be presenting a paper on a real-time implementation of the D-bar method.

In collaboration with the EIT group at the University of Sao Paulo (USP), Brazil, Dr. Mueller and Ph.D. student Michelle Mellenthin were awarded a provisional patent on the Active Electrode for the EIT system. Master's student Talles Santos (in the center in the photo) was a visitor to the lab from USP from Aug., 2013 - Feb., 2014.
