Real-time monitoring of lung function is one of the most promising applications of electrical impedance tomography (EIT). There are however some technical challenges that require validating diagnostic information extracted from EIT images. Two new data quality metrics are proposed and are applied on EIT and ventilator data acquired in an intensive care unit (ICU) setting. Their interpretation and usefulness in a clinical context is discussed.
