EIDORS3D is an open source software suite for image reconstruction in electrical impedance tomography and
diffuse optical tomography; designed to facilitate collaboration, testing and new research in these fields. This paper
describes recent work to redesign the software structure in order to simplify its use and provide a uniform interface,
permitting easier modification and customization. We describe the key features of this software, followed by
examples of its use.
EIDORS3D is a software suite for image reconstruction in electrical impedance tomography and diffuse optical
tomography. The goal is to provide a freely distributable and modifiable software for image reconstruction of
electrical or diffuse optical data. Such software facilitates research in these fields by providing a reference
implementation against which new developments can be compared, and by providing a functioning software base
onto which new ideas may be built and tested. The original EIDORS software (Vaukhonen et al., 2000) is based on
software from the thesis of Vaukhonen (1997) It implemented a MATLAB package for two-dimensional mesh
