Many MR-EPT reconstruction methods have been published, however, there is a lack of comparative experiments to verify the reconstructed electrical properties (EP) maps. In this work, we compared and validated the phase-based (PB), complex-image-based (CIB), and their simplified methods with ground truth vector network analyzer measurements on different conductivity phantoms. After serval comparative experiment repetitions, the complex-image-based method by Soullié et al. was the most consistent to the VNA ground truth measurements. The proposed setup can be used to compare other MR-EPT reconstruction methods.
