This paper presents a method for the numerical computation of 3-D sensitivity coefficients of a target object in magnetic induction tomography (MIT). The sensitivity coefficient at a point is defined as the dot product of electromagnetic fields produced by unit current flowing in the excitation and the detector coil. In this paper, the fields are governed by a set of boundary integral equations (BIEs). Numerical results demonstrate that the fields on the boundary and interior volume domain of the target can be accurately represented by radial basis functions (RBFs). The paper compares numerical solutions of the BIEs based on RBFs with analytical solutions and boundary element solutions.
