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: The reconstruction of multi-patch magnetic particle imaging data requires a compromise between image quality and calibration time. While optimal image quality is ensured by the joint reconstruction approach, a system matrix needs to be acquired for each patch. One can reuse system matrices by shifting them in space, which decreases the calibration effort but leads to distortions due to field imperfections. In this work, we introduce a method for reducing displacement artifacts in the efficient joint multi-patch reconstruction. Based on the magnetic fields we propose a mapping that warps the central system matrix to capture the spatial displacement of off-center system matrices. In this way, we can maintain the low calibration time while significantly improving the image quality.
