Medical diagnosis over the last decades have been reformed by tomographic imaging and has become a vital tool for diagnosis of several diseases. Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) as a new quantitative imaging method, uses the nonlinear re-magnetization behavior of magnetic nanoparticles to determine their local concentration. This paper presents an overview of a proposed method to design and construct an MPI scanner that will diagnose cancer. It is expected at the end of the research to come up with an extremely sensitive scanner that will detect the position of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) used as tracers in diagnosing cancer by producing a high temporal and spatial resolution images.
