In electrical impedance tomography, the impedance changes stemming from the descending aorta contain valuable information for haemodynamic monitoring. However, the low signal strength necessitates an optimal measurement setup. Among different belt positions investigated in this work, a transversal and low placement is the best choice for detecting signals of the descending aorta.
