The metallic plates used to pick up the signal must be sufficiently large to give a measureable change in capactiance, implying that the number of electrodes is usually very small, ≈ 10. This means that the technique is limited to producing very low resolution images but it is fast and inexpensive. 4 Magnetic resonance imaging Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is based on an effect called nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) (Slichter, 1994). In the easiest case a sample is placed in a uniform magnetic field.

The simplest instance is when the object to be reconstructed is binary, that is, D = {0, 1}. In other words: there are only two materials in the object, for example, steel and air. Binary objects can be represented in different ways depending on their complexity. , 2005). More general shapes can be described using polygons and deformable models (Mohammad-Djafari and Sauer, 1998). The most general class of objects needs to be represented by binary matrices. The reconstruction of binary matrices from their projections is a well-understood area with powerful theoretical foundations, reconstruction algorithms, and applications (Herman and Kuba, 1999, Herman and Kuba, 2007).

Thus, density enrichments can be located in three dimensions. The spatial resolution of the method is of the order of a few millimetres and the signal obtained represents the local density of the tracer molecule. By combining X-ray tomography and PET one can increase the level of information: The X-rays yield the density distribution of the body with a good resolution, PET the local concentration of the radioactive tracer molecule, and both can be superimposed graphically to facilitate clinical analysis.
