In this work, in vivo conductivity values of human tissue are obtained using standard MRI. Conductivity is a new and quantitative contrast for MRI. It can be obtained in 3D within 5 min by means of phase-based reconstruction presented in this abstract. Phase-based reconstruction is motivated analytically and validated in FDTD simulations and in in vivo experiments.
