Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a brand new non-invasive imaging technique that detects iron oxide nanoparticles to provide 2D and 3D photographs. MPI imaging is extra delicate and considerably quicker than MRI and PET imaging.
ARA-MBI in Melbourne operates the world’s first MPI instrument that’s paired with a localised hyperthermia system (HYPER module) and CT scanner.
Working synergistically collectively, these three applied sciences supply a preclinical theranostic platform that delivers distinctive picture high quality to detect, and deal with, therapeutic targets.
The MPI can function with or with out the HYPER module and CT scanner.
Advantages of MPI
- The Magnetic Perception system at present affords the world’s highest sensitivity and backbone of MPI photographs
- Easy to function, eliminating the necessity for a devoted scanner operator and permitting researchers to amass their very own information
- Avoids the radiation burden of PET, and when used with out CT removes the x-ray dose
