Project Description:

Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is an evolving Technology aiming at non-radiative, non-invasive imaging of functional parameters such as blood flow or targeted metabolic processes. In particular, reconstruction quality is limited due to the restricted approximation Quality of PDE-based models. Data-driven approaches, based on neural networks and deep learning, would allow to incorporate expert information obtained from experimental measurements and to improve diagnostic potential of MPI technology.

Objectives of this research project are the analysis of limitations of PDE-based models (Maxwell and derived models) for coil sensitivities with a wide range of further applications. The work comprises development of concepts for data-driven operator adaptions under efficiency constraints as well as the implementation of deep learning methods for model adaptions.
