A contrast mechanism which is selective to the binding of a magnetic nanoparticle has been successfully observed in an NMR spectrometer. There are, however, difficulties to achieve compatibility with a standard MRI device. We present first experiments on how to realize this contrast mechanism in an open tomography system.
