Abstract

This research project aims to expand the studies conducted by our team to three dimensions and include modeling of the capacitive effects. The final goal is to obtain a development environment supporting several test modules which can be adapted to use by other researches in the same field. The proposed test modules are projected to involve both numeric simulations and measurements from patients or physical phantoms. In the present state, the simulated annealing algorithm developed is capable of performing a TIE image reconstruction in some minutes. For the purpose of this project, using a general purpose computing on graphic processing unit (GPGPU), this time is expected to be reduced to just a few seconds. Two objective functions are proposed to be employed by two an three dimensional models, which will also consider capacitive effects which exist in the interface between the electrode and the domain. The GPGPU implementation will avoid random memory access, as well as divergent threads, in order to fully explore its computing potential. It is worth to note that efficient GPGPU implementations of dot vector product, vector multiplication and triangular solver are available to use. The new GPGPU implemented code will use the colored pJDS sparse matrix represented, which is more appropriate for the GPU architecture. This research project is a natural extension of a Thematic Project and two Individual Grants supported by FAPESP and a Universal Project supported by CNPq. It is also contained in a Núcleo de Apoio à Pesquisa supported by USP (NAP TIE-US). (AU)
