We have developed a new approach to imaging with electrical impedance tomography (EIT) using gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) to enhance impedance changes at targeted tissue sites. This is achieved using radio frequency (RF) to heat nanoparticles while applying EIT imaging. The initial results using 5-nm citrate coated AuNPs show that heating can enhance the impedance in a solution containing AuNPs due to the application of an RF field at 2.60 GHz.
