Curriculum Vitae

Tobias Knopp received his Diplom degree in computer science in 2007 and his PhD in 2010, both from the University of Lübeck with highest distinction. For his PHD on the tomographic imaging method Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) he was awarded with the Klee award from the DGBMT (VDE) in 2011. From 2010 until 2011 he led the MAPIT project at the University of Lübeck and published the first scientific book on MPI. In 2011 he joined Bruker Biospin to work on the first commercially available MPI system. From 2012 until 2014 he worked at Thorlabs in the field of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a software developer. In 2014 he has been appointed as Professor for experimental Biomedical Imaging at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and the Hamburg University of Technology.

Abstract: Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a tracer based medical imaging modality with great potential due to its high sensitivity, high spatial and temporal resolution, and its ability to quantify the tracer concentration. Image reconstruction in MPI is an ill-posed problem, which can be addressed by regularization methods that lead to a reconstruction bias, which is apparent in a systematic mismatch between true and reconstructed tracer distribution. This is expressed in a background signal, a mismatch of the spatial support of the tracer distribution and a mismatch of its values. In this work, MPI reconstruction bias and its impact are investigated and a recently proposed debiasing method with significant bias reduction capabilities is adopted.
