Magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) and MR electrical properties tomography (MREPT) are medical imaging modalities capable of visualizing the electrical permittivity and conductivity distribution of conducting objects at different operating frequencies. MREIT provides conductivity information at low frequency while MREPT is related to the conductivity at the Larmor frequency. Here both experiments are carried out to show the contrast differences in the two imaging methods.
