In this study, we evaluate the hyperthermia efficiency of polypropylene (PP) fibers with incorporated magnetic nanoparticles (MNP), which are used to develop inductive heatable stents in cancer therapy. Further, we investigate their depiction in magnetic particle imaging (MPI). We show that the intrinsic loss power (ILP) value depends on the MNP agglomeration state and their concentration inside the fibers, while the intensity values in the MPI images show a linear response with MNP concentration. We conclude that MNP dynamic magnetic behavior strongly changes with different MNP agglomeration states and magnetic field settings.
