Magnetic Particle Imaging

Grant program: Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF)

Magnetic particle imaging is a novel medical imaging technique. Magnetic iron-oxide particles are injected into the bloodstream of a patient. A reconstruction of their position inside the body yields information about the inner structure, particularly of the cardiovascular system, without using ionizing radiation.  MPI is highly sensitive and offers a high temporal resolution. The aim of this project is to take into account nonlinear modeling and relaxation effects in order to increase the resolution of the reconstructions.
