Expertise: Electrical Impedance Imaging, Impedance tomography, Impedance spectroscopy
Dr. Jonathan Newell is a Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He earned undergraduate and Master’s Degrees in Electrical Engineering at Rensselaer, and a Ph.D. in Physiology at the Albany Medical College. He has led a team of investigators developing Electrical Impedance Tomography or Spectroscopy for clinical use. The team has developed four generations of instruments since 1985, and applied them to the thorax for acute cardiopulmonary monitoring, and to the breast for cancer detection. Dr. Newell has made significant contributions to hardware and reconstruction algorithms that have had a significant impact on this field, reported in over 80 papers and 10 patents.
