  <dc:description>Magnetic resonance-based electric properties tomography

The example shows the uncertainty evaluation, under repeatability conditions, of a technique for Electric Properties Tomography (EPT), a quantitative imaging method based on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Repeated acquisitions of MRI scans of a homogeneous cylindrical phantom are analysed with appropriate statistical techniques to evaluate the variance-covariance matrix of the EPT input. The latter is then propagated through the EPT technique according to the law of propagation of the uncertainty as described in the GUM [Activity A2.3.2].
