Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a new imaging method, which uses superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles as tracer material. Due to their tube-like design, most MPI devices have limited patient access. In this paper, an improved oil-cooled single-sided MPI device is presented that has the advantage that all coils, which are generating the magnetic fields or receiving the particle signal, are coplanar and on one side of the patient only. In consequence, the object, which will be scanned, is not limited in size. In this paper, a first 1-D image recorded with the new device is presented.
