The subject of this work is a magnetic-particle-imaging system featuring a field generator with an inner bore diameter of 180 mm. The scanner, which is large enough to accommodate small animals, is capable of generating a selection field either with a field free point or with a field free line. In this work, the imaging system is used to acquire two-dimensional data from a particle distribution using a field free point to record a system matrix. Finally, a plain particle phantom is measured to evaluate the imaging data and show the first two-dimensional image that is recorded with this setup.
