In magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) currents are injected to the object during MRI imaging sequence. In this study, we propose a new pulse sequence based on the spatial modulation of magnetization (SPAMM) to be used in MREIT applications. In this pulse sequence, the current is injected during a pre SPAMM module which can be followed by any conventional Magnetic Resonance Imaging pulse sequence for data acquisition. Experimental result in comparison with the simulation result shows that this method is an applicable technique for MREIT data acquisition.
