Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a rapidly developing imaging modality, which determines the spatial distribution of magnetic nanoparticles. Magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) is a promising therapeutic approach where magnetic nanoparticles are used to transform electromagnetic energy into heat. The similarities of MPI and MFH give rise to the potential of integration of MFH and MPI. In our previous work, a heating coil insert for the preclinical MPI scanner is designed, which can be utilized to generate a high frequency magnetic field suitable for MFH. The current development of the heating coil insert is presented in this paper.
