Beside the original scanner geometry for Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) introduced by Gleich et. al. in 2005,1alternative scanner geometries have been introduced.2-4 In excess of the opportunities in medical application offered by MPI itself, these new scanner geometries permit additional medical application scenarios. Here, the single-sided scanner geometry is implemented as imaging device for supporting the sentinel lymph node biopsy concept. In this contribution, the medical application is outlined, and the geometry of the scanner device is presented together with first simulation results providing information about the achievable image quality.
