Magnetic Particle Imaging (ARA-MBI)

New technology for molecular imagingMPI System

The Alfred Research Alliance-Monash Biomedical Imaging (ARA-MBI) site in Prahran will soon house one of only two Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) instruments Australia wide.

The Magnetic Insights MOMENTUM MPI system produces the world’s highest sensitivity and resolution of MPI images, and is designed with simple operation. This eliminates the need for a dedicated scanner operator, allowing researchers the opportunity to acquire their own data. The system can be used for quantitative molecular imaging.

The MPI system at ARA-MBI will be equipped with two additional features:

  1. An integrated CT module, allowing the exact localisation of functional events
  2. A HYPER module, which offers millimetre heating accuracy and real-time monitoring of the therapeutic heat dose.

Commencing operation soon

The system is currently being installed and will commence operation later in 2020.
