Purpose: Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a fast, radiation free, sensitive, and quantifiable imaging modality using superparamagnetic iron oxide particles (SPIO) as tracer [1]. Potential MPI utilizations include cardiovascular applications such as angiographies and endovascular interventions [2]. As initi[...]

Methods and materials: A standard guide wire and balloon-catheter were labeled with a thin layer of magnetic lacquer at the tip of the wire and on both sides of the balloon ( Fig. 1 ). A vessel phantom with a stenosis was either filled with saline or super paramagnetic iron oxide particles (MM4) and equipped with bimodal [...]

Results: Real time multicolored visualization of the different tracers' distinct magnetic fingerprints at a rate of 6 frames/s ( Fig. 4 ), as well as MRI/MPI-roadmapping using bimodal fiducial markers, was feasible allowing MPI-guidance for PTA ( Fig. 5 ). The magnetic lacquer consisted of 10-20 nm thick iro[...]

Conclusion: Multicolored MPI allows for 3D real-time guidance of endovascular instruments and PTA. A combination of MPI/MRI for an anatomical road map in addition to multispectral interventions with a blood pool agent might emerge as a promising tool for radiation free interventions.
