Current density imaging may have potential biomedical applications in understanding externally applied electric fields to the body (e.g. defibrillation fields) and measurement of lead-sensitivity maps for bio-electric imaging. Since biological tissues have different electrical properties, it may be possible to obtain anatomical and functional information from current density images.
This project is a collaborative work with University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia - U.S.A.
