Modeling of Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) systems allows for developing and testing novel methods for image reconstruction and simulating various setups without the need of real-life measurement data. Here we describe the the initial development of a C++ simulation software designed to provide more realistic MPI simulation data, by accounting for effects like non-linear gradient fields, non-uniform drive fields, space-dependent coil sensitivity, temperature gradients and particle relaxation, as well as the results of the comparison of the simulated signals against real-life Magnetic Particle Spectroscopy (MPS) measurements. In addition to MPI, the software is also suitable for simulating other applications, e.g. MPS, AC susceptibility and pulsed relaxometry measurements.
