Study of influencing factors on Electrical Impedance Scanning Imaging

Study of influencing factors on Electrical Impedance Scanning Imaging

Conference Proceedings 3: 2910-2913

Electrical impedance scanning (EIS) is a new adjunctive diagnostic method for women breast cancer examination. In clinic research, we found some influencing factors which can induce a bad EIS imaging results. In order to analyze the influencing factors on EIS imaging and find the solutions, we set up an EIS workbench which can simulate the influencing factors that may happen in a clinic. We studied the influencing factors from size, depth of the target; the influence from the poor contact; the influence from the unparallel current field. The experiment results show that the detectability of EIS system is a function of the depth, the size and the area of electrodes; a good contact between the probe and the skin can decrease the artificial imaging; using the imaging algorithm can calibrate the imaging induced by unparallel current field.
