  • Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a radiation-free imaging method. Canonically, in lung EIT, 16 electrodes are placed horizontally on the thorax skin. By injecting currents through electrodes attached to the skin, a set of induced voltage measurements can be collected. The conductivity distribution on the chest plane can be obtained from these electrical boundary conditions. It has been reported that the adjacent current injection pattern is sub-optimal for EIT reconstruction. However, this adjacent current injection pattern is commonly used in commercially available EIT devices. In this study, we modify the boundary conditions according to the superposition principle of the electrical field. As a result, boundary conditions of the adjacent current pattern will be transformed to those corresponding to "skip-3" current injection pattern. Simulation results indicated that reconstruction benefits from the modified boundary conditions.
