Figure 5

Automatic process of coregistration shown by axial slices view (capital letters A–D) and volume renderings (a–d): Step 1 consists of identification of the EIT belt electrodes in the CT datasets (A,a), which can be identified in the EIT data as well. Then pulmonary density maps (B,b) of inspiration and expiration were calculated. Consecutively, difference maps (C,c) were computed. Finally, analysis was virtually restricted to the volume next to the belt (D,d), which was called ΔDECT(Belt).
