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.
