Electric properties tomography (EPT) is a novel magnetic resonance imaging–based method to estimate non-invasively the distribution of the electric properties in the human body. In this paper, EPTlib, an open-source extensible C++ library collecting ready-to-use algorithms for electric properties tomography, is presented. Currently, EPTlib implements three techniques, named Helmholtz-EPT, convection-reaction-EPT and gradient-EPT, whose derivation and implementation is deeply discussed. Moreover, the configuration files needed by the terminal application included in EPTlib to apply the implemented techniques are outlined. The three techniques are applied to a couple of model problems in order to highlight their main features and the effects of the tunable parameters.

Abstract

Electric properties tomography (EPT) is a novel magnetic resonance imaging–based method to estimate non-invasively the distribution of the electric properties in the human body. In this paper, EPTlib, an open-source extensible C++ library collecting ready-to-use algorithms for electric properties tomography, is presented. Currently, EPTlib implements three techniques, named Helmholtz-EPT, convection-reaction-EPT and gradient-EPT, whose derivation and implementation is deeply discussed. Moreover, the configuration files needed by the terminal application included in EPTlib to apply the implemented techniques are outlined. The three techniques are applied to a couple of model problems in order to highlight their main features and the effects of the tunable parameters.
