Hybrid imaging systems become more and more important in
modern medicine to improve the diagnostic value.
Combining data acquired with the novel tracer-based
imaging modality Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) with
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data has been shown to
be a promising approach. This work presents a fully
integrated 12 channel hybrid magnet system design as
well as first MPI-MRI images using this preclinical
demonstrator. This hybrid system offers sequentially MPI
and MRI imaging without any movement of the object.
