IWMPI - International Workshop on Magnetic Particle Imaging
Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a novel imaging modality that uses various static and oscillating magnetic fields to image the spatial distribution of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIOs) with high sensitivity, no tissue background, and no ionizing radiation. The method exploits the non-linear magnetization behavior of the SPIOs, and has shown great potential to surpass current in vivo imaging modalities in terms of sensitivity, safety, quantitation, and spatio-temporal resolution. MPI is well suited for clinical applications such as angiography, cancer imaging, and inflammation imaging; as well as research applications such as stem cell imaging and small animal imaging.
First in 2010, and again in 2012, at the University of Lübeck, the workshop is taking place for the 10th time. Previous workshops have visited Berkeley in 2013 and then Berlin (2014), Istanbul (2015), Lübeck (2016), Prague (2017), Hamburg (2018), New York (2019) and as an online workshop (2020) consecutively. The workshop will provide not only the opportunity to present research work and results, but also new ideas and directions in the field of Magnetic Particle Imaging to a highly interested audience of scientific, medical and application experts from universities, clinical and commercial sites, active in the field.
March 22-24, 2023
