Bioelectric Properties and Bioelectromagnetic Source Imaging

The electromagnetic process and properties of biological tissue provide rich diagnostic and functional information. These researchers are studying imaging modalities, including high-resolution spatio-temporal bioelectromagnetic source imaging and bioelectric properties imaging, both of which have promising potential applications in diagnosis and management of various diseases. Computer simulation studies are being conducted to obtain the behavior of electromagnetic field under assumed excitation using realistic human geometric model. Approaches include use of the finite element method and various signal and image processing algorithms. The researchers rely on MSI’s computational resources such as large memory, multi-core CPUs, and commercial software such as ANSYS and ANSOFT to facilitate their studies.
