Diagnosing obesity by mathematically estimating fat

Researchers from ETH Zurich, Switzerland and Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, have proposed a new technique to evaluate abdominal obesity by estimating the thickness of subcutaneous fat using electrical impedance tomography (EIT). The paper, ‘Mathematical Framework for Abdominal Electrical Impedance Tomography to Assess Fatness’, was published in the SIAM…
