Large selection-field power is required to generate a sufficient gradient strength in Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI). Without cooling, the subsequent heat generation can limit the maximum experiment time. For commercially available MPI scanners a lot of effort was put into active cooling requiring space and infrastructure to dissipate heat. In this abstract, a promising power handling for the selection-field generation is presented. Using a pulsed instead of a continuous selection-field the gradient strength can be increased and no active cooling is required.
