EPT conductivity reconstruction is affected by difficulties to reliably calculate spatial derivatives on voxelized MRI data. Here, we explore the impact of several numerical approximations. In particular: the different size of finite-difference kernels and the k-space truncation (always present in MR images). We also explore a Fourier-domain alternative, which does not require finite-difference approximation kernels.
