Magnetic induction tomography (MIT) is a tomographic technique capable of imaging the passive electromagnetic properties of an object. It has the advantages of being contact-less and non-invasive, as the process involves interrogating the electromagnetic field of the imaging subject. As such, the potential applications of MIT are broad, with various domains of operation including biomedicine, industrial process tomography and non-destructive evaluation. Consequently, there is a rich—yet underexplored—research landscape for the practical applications of MIT. The aim of this review is to provide a non-exhaustive overview of this landscape. The fundamental principles of MIT are discussed, alongside the instrumentation and techniques necessary to obtain and interpret MIT measurements.
