Biomedical Aplications of Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) and Spectroscopy

The group has developed and applied instrumentation for EIT and spectroscopy  in the following medical fields:
  • Monitoring ventilation in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients
  • Body Impedance Analysis (BIA) for Haemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis
  • BIA in Heart Failure
  • Body composition and Body Fluid Shift in µ-gravity
  • Electrical Biopsy for evolution of ischemia and heart graft rejection
  • Biomass monitoring for cell cultures
  • Food quality control
  • Monitoring of cell division and differentiation in monolayer cultures
