X-ray-guided endovascular interventions are important treatment approaches for many cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction, stroke or occlusive peripheral arterial disease. However, they pose the risk of radiation exposure to patients and staff. Magnetic particle imaging may provide a radiation-free alternative for diagnostic and image guided treatment. A new open bore scanner concept, based on a traveling field free line and super paramagnetic iron oxide tracers is developed especially for interventional treatments. Due to the open design the scanner provides good accessibility to the patient.
