Engineering Tomography Laboratory (ETL)
ETL works in tomographic imaging techniques and inverse problem algorithms for applications ranging from industrial imaging to medical imaging and to imaging for material characterisation. We also work on image reconstruction for volumetric X-ray CT devices. Please contact for potential collaboration in these imaging techniques. ETL is active in tomography hardware, sensor, and software. Recent works are on capacitive/inductive planar array imaging.
· Imaging Hardware/Sensor: We have developed several tomographic imaging facilities including: 1) 32 electrodes EIT system, 2) 16 electrodes, KHU Mark 2.5 multi-frequency EIT system, 3) Industrial MIT system (32 channels), 4) Medical MIT system (16 channels), 5) Ultrasound tomography system, and 6) 2D and 3D ECT equipment (24 channels).
· Imaging Software: We have developed our own in house tomography software in ETL for these areas: 1)EIT, 2)ECT, 4)MIT, and 4)Cone beam X-ray CT. The software package is called “Tomographic Image Reconstruction Software (TIRS)”. More information on this software platform will appear here soon.
-ETL has released GPU based cone beam CT imaging software, called TIGRE jointly with CERN.
Planar array capacitive and inductive tomography in 3D
Our recent work in on limited access tomography involving development of 3D planar array ECT and MIT.

EIT: Thin film and fabric based sensors
We have developed an electrical impedance tomography (EIT) device for pressure mapping imaging. The medium to be imaged is made of conductive fabric. A map of the pressure/deformation applied to the fabric can be obtained. We have constructed an electrical impedance tomography (EIT) device. The medium to be imaged is surrounded by a ring of electrodes, and by measuring the between different combinations of electrodes, an image of the object's resistivity can be obtained. Currently, 3D EIT is being developed.
