Dunne, Eoghan, Porter, Emily, McGinley, Brian, & O’Halloran, Martin (2017). Realistic 3D finite element mesh of the adult human pelvis for electrical impedance tomography. In Alistair Boyle, Ryan Halter, Ethan Murphy & Andy Adler (Eds.), Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Biomedical Applications of Electrical Impedance Tomography.

The finite element method is a numerical technique used to solve forward models for electrical impedance tomography. To date, realistic finite element models (FEMs) have been created for the head and thorax, but pelvic models for bladder imaging are lacking. This paper presents a high quality, first-order, tetrahedral FEM of 25004 nodes and 129157 elements for the adult male pelvis, with mean and standard deviation stretch values of 0.752 and 0.082, respectively.
