Convection-reaction MREPT (crMREPT) method is a more general approach to reconstruct an electrical property map based on B1-maps from a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner compared to other existing methods in the literature, such as electrical property tomography (EPT) and local Maxwell tomography (LMT). However, crMREPT shows global spurious oscillations in the reconstructed maps and persistent artifacts in the region when $$$\small\triangledown|B_1|$$$ is small. We propose a solution to effectively mitigate the artifacts by applying a viscosity-type regularization. This abstract shows that the proposed method significantly increases the accuracy of the reconstructed electrical property maps and reduces the sensitivity to noise comparing to crMREPT.
