This work deals with a two-dimensional inverse problem in the field of tomography. The geometry of an unknown inclusion has to be reconstructed from boundary measurements. In this paper, we extend previous results of R. Kress and his coauthors: the leading idea is to use the conformal mapping function as unknown. We establish an integrodifferential equation that the trace of the Riemann map solves. We write it as a fixed point equation and give conditions for contraction. We conclude with a series of numerical examples illustrating the performance of the method.
