Introduction: EIT of acute stroke Ischaemic Haemorrhagic Stroke is the leading cause of disability and third cause of mortality in industrialized nations. Clot-busting drugs can improve the outcome of ischaemic stroke, but they need to be administered FAST !

Method: Fraction model The following assumptions are made: 1.the domain is composed of a known number T of tissues with distinct conductivity, 2.the conductivity of each tissue is known for all measurement frequencies, 3.the conductivity of the nth element is given by the linear combination of the conductivities of the component tissues where and.

Method: Fraction reconstruction Numerical validation Fractions Model Minimize… …subject to Step 1. Gradient projection Step 2. Damped Gauss-Newton repeat
Results: Use of difference data Phantom FractionsAbsolute Conductivities Difference data Absolute data
Results: Use of all multifrequency data Phantom Fractions All frequencies Single frequency WFD Conductivities
Results: Use of nonlinear method Model Fractions WFD Conductivities Nonlinear method Linear method
Discussion Advantages: Simultaneous and direct use of all multifrequency data Nonlinear reconstruction method Use of difference data Disadvantage: Requires accurate knowledge of tissue spectra. Temperature? Flow rate? Cell count?
