Instrumentation & Algorithm Development

The tomographic imaging method Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) allows the measurement and visualization of the distribution and concentration of magnetic nanoparticles. Fraunhofer IMTE supports you in the instrumentation, the holistic analysis and development of the necessary hardware as well as in the development of suitable software for optimal imaging.


Our services in the area of instrumentation and algorithm development include:

  • Development, construction and optimization of
    • Scanner components
    • Additional components (e.g., application-specific coils)
    • Hard- and software to modify MPI systems for therapeutic applications
    • Hard- and software for real-time-capable systems
  • Adaptation of existing scanners for specific applications
  • Development of application-specific and individualized reconstruction algorithms
  • Development of application-specific imaging sequences
  • Identification and individual adaptation of reconstruction parameters
