Abstract: Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a novel and versatile imaging modality developing towards human application. When up-scaling to human size, the sensitivity of the systems naturally drops as the coil sensitivity depends on the bore diameter. Thus, new methods to push the sensitivity limit further have to be investigated to cope for this loss. In this paper a dedicated surface coil improving the sensitvity in cerebral imaging applications was developed. Similar to MRI the developed surface coil improves the sensitivity due to the closer vicinity to the region of interest. With the developed surface coil presented in this work, it is possible to image tracer samples containing only 896 pg iron and detect even small vessels and anatomical structures within a wild type mouse model. As current sensitivity measures are dependent on the tracer system a new method for determining a sensitivity measure without this dependence on the tracer is presented and verified to enable comparison between MPI receiver systems.
