The electrical conductivity of human tissues has been inferred from in vitro and/or ex vivo measurements of different species. However, in vivo tissues may differ from in vitro or ex vivo state due to the complicated tissue responses in living organs. In this study, we performed in vivo MREIT imaging of human lower extremity and compared the resulting conductivity images with ex vivo biological tissue phantom images. Comparing with phantom results, the human conductivity images showed similar pattern except muscle and adipose tissue due to the anisotropic characteristic of muscle and irrigation of high conductive fluids in the adipose tissue.
