Abstract

The observed conductivities in compressed breasts in EIT are smaller than those seen previously in whole chest imaging. Looking at the anatomical breast model we could attribute this to a thin resistive skin layer present in breasts. To test this hypothesis and try to more accurately model breasts, we have developed a layered analytical forward model. Our layered model has three layers, thin top and bottom layers representing skin and a thicker middle layer representing breast tissue.
