    Hello guys,

    would it be possible if we send a low alternating current like 0.8mA through a human body, that we could see a 3d model or an illustration of the distribution of the current in the body?

    Sure, it might be possible.

    How would you measure the current density throughout the body?

    No, I'm not sure either. Perhaps you were asking the wrong question.

    It looks like MRI might provide a way to do this.

    edit: as a bonus you get the 3D model too.
