Tomographic imaging using the nonlinear response of magnetic particles

  title={Tomographic imaging using the nonlinear response of magnetic particles},
  author={Bernhard Gleich and J{\"u}rgen Weizenecker},
The use of contrast agents and tracers in medical imaging has a long history. They provide important information for diagnosis and therapy, but for some desired applications, a higher resolution is required than can be obtained using the currently available medical imaging techniques. Consider, for example, the use of magnetic tracers in magnetic resonance imaging: detection thresholds for in vitro and in vivo imaging are such that the background signal from the host tissue is a crucial… CONTINUE READING
