The goal of the project is validating the use of EIT (Electrical Impedance Tomography) for non-invasive lung perfusion monitoring. To this end, the heart sources of the signal are investigated through three major research vectors: animal trials, signal modelling and algorithm development. Ultimately, this knowledge can provide novel possibilities to optimize and automate bedside lung therapy.
