In this study, we investigated the incorporation of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) data into the sensitivity matrix method (SMM) for magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) of a tumor-bearing rat. The results indicate that such an incorporation allows us to reconstruct sensible conductivity images, something which has remained problematic for in vivo MREIT.
