This work presents a new gradient design for magnetic particle imaging that will allow performing dynamic imaging in a linear sampling scheme rather than a Lissajous trajectory by generating a traveling wave. Aside from the simplified trajectory, this approach provides the possibility of increasing the field of view arbitrarily in one dimension without increasing the sampling time.
