Instrument markers for magnetic particle and magnetic resonance imaging
Volltext: For MPI, with its huge potential for cardiovascular applications, there is the need to develop dedicated interventional instruments. Especially, for MPI-MRI hybrid imaging approaches the instruments must be both, safe and visible in each modality. The purpose of this study was to manufacture bimodal instrument markers for MPI and MRI. To guarantee sufficient imaging performance in both modalities, the markers are based on two different particle types.
