Abstract

Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is an imaging modality that exploits the nonlinear response of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) to a time-varying magnetic field. In the past years, various scanner topologies have been proposed. Among these, a single-sided scanner was presented in 2009. This scanner features all its hardware located on one side, offering accessibility without limitations due to the size of the object of interest. In this paper, the magnetic fields used in the scanner and 2-D image reconstruction over a field of view (FOV) of 2 cm is simulated. Hereby, the implemented algorithm is the filtered backprojection (FBP).
