Abstract: We first provide an example of a ring such that all possible structural matrix rings over are isomorphic. However, we prove that the underlying graphs of any two isomorphic structural matrix rings over a semiprime Noetherian ring are isomorphic, i.e. the underlying Boolean matrix of a structural matrix ring over a semiprime Noetherian ring can be recovered, contrary to the fact that in general cannot be recovered.
