Receive path calibration to exchange system matrix data of different receivers


In Magnetic Particle Imaging the determination of the system matrix is a time-consuming process. As the transfer function differs depending on the electronics of the receive chain, a system matrix recorded with one chain cannot be used for reconstruction of measurement data using a different receive chain. This leads to huge amounts of data as system matrices have to be recorded for every set of drive field strength, particle system and receiver chain setting. In this paper the complexity of this is reduced by the factor of the receiver electronics. For each receive path of our MPI system the transfer function is recorded and stored on the measurement device. When loading the data, the transfer-function is corrected which allows the exchange of the system matrices data between receiver chains. To demonstrate this system matrix data is compared and a successful reconstruction of an in vivo dataset is shown.
