Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a noninvasive biomedical imaging modality that shows great promise for Molecular and Cellular Imaging. MPI relies on completely different physics from our conventional imaging modalities: MRI, CT, X-ray, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine. Its physics advantages could usher completely noninvasive alternatives to studies currently performed with radioactive nuclear medicine techniques, such as stem cell tracking, perfusion imaging, angiography and cancer imaging.
