We demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining conductivity using EPT from patients with stroke. The ischemic lesion exhibited significantly higher conductivity values than the contralateral brain tissue in the cerebral brain, while the pons and cerebellum showed similar levels of conductivity values between the ischemic lesion and the contralateral brain tissue. The levels of conductivity value appeared to be specific to regions. The infratentorial normal brain exhibited a significantly higher level of conductivity than the supratentorial brain. In addition, the levels of conductivity were significantly different between the ischemic lesions of basal ganglia & thalamus and cerebral hemisphere.
