Lung disease can be diagnosed with the image-based medical devices, including radiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. The devices are very expensive and have negative effects. An alternative device is electrical impedance tomography (EIT). The advantages of EIT arelow cost, fast, real-time, and free radiation, so it is very appropriate to be used as a monitoring device. The relative reconstruction method has succeeded in producing functional images of lung anomalies by simulation. In this study, the relative reconstruction method was used to obtain functional images of four lungs conditions, namely a healthy person, patient with left lung tumor with organized left pleural effusion, one with pulmonary tuberculosis with right pneumothorax and one with pulmonary tuberculosis with left pleural effusion. The relative reconstruction method can be used to obtain functional images of an individual’s lung conditions by using expiratory-respiratory potential data with results that can distinguish between the lungs of a healthy person and a diseased patient, but the position of the lung disease may have less details. The potential data from comparison between the data of a patient and a healthy person can be used as a reference to obtain more accurate functional image information of lung disease.
