The Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) reconstruction problem can be solved as an optimization problem in which the discrepancy between a simulated impedance domain and the observed one is minimized. This optimization problem can be solved by a combination of Simulated Annealing (SA) for optimization and the Finite Element Method (FEM) for simulating the impedance domain. A new objective function based on the total least squares error minimization is proposed. This objective function is ill-conditioned with dense meshes. Two possibilities to overcome ill-conditioning are considered: combination with another objective function (Euclidean distance) and inclusion of a regularization term. To speed up the algorithm, results from previous iterations are used to improve the present iteration convergence, and a preconditioner is proposed. This new reconstruction approach is evaluated with experimental data and compared with previous approaches. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. (AU)
