Dear Matthew,

There are a couple paper that describe this fairly superficially:

R.S.~MacLeod, C.R.~Johnson, and P.R.~Ershler. Construction of an
        inhomogeneous model of the human torso for use in computational
        electrocardiography.  In {\em IEEE Engineering in Medicine and
        Biology Society 13th Annual International Conference}, pages
        688--689. IEEE Press, 1991.

C.R.~Johnson, R.S.~MacLeod, and P.R.~Ershler.  A computer model for
        the study of electrical current flow in the human thorax.  {\em
        Comp. in Bio. and Med.}  22:305--323, 1992.

But the most detailed description is a technical report we published here at the University of Utah:

You can find this in postscript format at

In a few minutes, you will also be able to get a pdf version of the same file at

This is probably more detail than you want, but that's the price you pay for asking (-:

Could you describe the steps used to create the Utah torso dataset or point
me towards sombody who might be able to provide details. In a short review
of the literature it looks like many people have used CT/MRI data and imagej
(or its precursors) see . CUBIT and a few other
tools also look promising.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thank You,
