Magnetic Particle Imaging is a new imaging approach which can directly image super-paramagnetic nano particles. For 3D imaging we present a new approach which encodes with a traveling wave in one direction and a combination of frequency mixing and slicing for the other two dimensions. The advantage of this traveling wave approach is the possibility to arbitrarily increase the FoV in one direction without increasing the scanning time or the SAR.
