One medical application scenario of a single-sided field free point (FFP) magnetic particle imaging (MPI) scanner is the localization of sentinel lymph nodes of patients with breast cancer. For this clinical application, the minimization of the scanner is essential to enable a comfortable patient access. Existing single-sided MPI scanners are non-flexible systems with limited field of view. This abstract presents a simulation study of a flexible downscaled single-sided FFP MPI scanner with unconfined field of view.
