Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a novel medical imaging technique, which uses magnetic fields to detect tracer material consisting of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). After a short motivation why medical imaging will benefit from this new technology, the basic physical principle of MPI and the development of tracer material will be described. As MPI makes specific demands on the MNPs, the theoretical and experimental analysis of MNPs for MPI will be investigated. Further, different scanner setups will be introduced, and possible image reconstruction methods will be explained. Finally, an outlook on different innovative applications will be given.
