Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a new non-invasive imaging technique that detects iron oxide nanoparticles to create 2D and 3D images. MPI imaging is more sensitive and significantly faster than MRI and PET imaging.
ARA-MBI in Melbourne operates the world’s first MPI instrument that is coupled with a localized hyperthermia system (HYPER module) and a CT scanner.
These three technologies work synergistically together to provide a preclinical theranostic platform that delivers exceptional image quality for identifying and treating therapeutic targets.
The MPI can be operated with or without a HYPER module and CT scanner.
Advantages of MPI
- The Magnetic Insight system currently offers the highest sensitivity and resolution of MPI images in the world
- Easy to use, eliminates the need for a dedicated scanner operator and enables researchers to own their own data capture
- Avoids the radiation exposure of the PET and removes the X-ray dose when used without a CT
