The success of tracer-based tomographic methods, such as Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI), depends on two factors primarily: scanner hardware and tracer performance. Within the last years, several hardware improvements have been presented improving temporal and spatial resolution of MPI systems. However, there was still a lack of efficient commercially available tracers for MPI. Here we report on synomag® particles as a new tracer tailored for MPI, which shows almost four-times higher signal in a Traveling Wave MPI scanner than the established tracer Resovist®.
