Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a new tomographic imaging modality that directly and quantitatively images iron oxide nanoparticle concentration without anatomical background signal. It combines high sensitivity with the ability of fast volumetric imaging. Current demonstrators either provide fast imaging or a large field of view. Here, a solution is proposed, that allows for both, fast imaging with large FOVs.
