Harmonic dependence of thermal magnetic particle imaging



Thinh Bui, Mark-Alexander Henn, Weston L. Tew, Megan Catterton, Solomon I. Woods


Advances in instrumentation and tracer materials are still required to enable sensitive and accurate 3D temperature monitoring by magnetic particle imaging. We have developed a magnetic particle imaging instrument to observe temperature variations using MPI, and discuss resolution dependence on temperature and harmonic number. Furthermore, we present a low noise approach using lock-in detection for temperature measurement, and discuss implications for a new detection modality of MPI.
