Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a new imaging modality that
directly detects iron oxide nanoparticle tracers using time-varying magnetic fields. Magnetic Insight is developing an MPI system capable of producing the world’s highest
sensitivity and finest resolution MPI images. Applications of MPI include cancer imaging, cell tracking, and angiography.
Magnetic insight brought us onboard to aid in the design and implementation of their imaging software. We collaborate closely with their in-house hardware and software teams. Our role on the project involved:
Architecting and developing the sequence generation pipeline
Developing a custom DICOM exporter that fits within the standard as closely as possible (given MPI is a new modality)
Designing and developing a desktop user interface
Setting up a continuous integration and deployment pipeline
Architecting and developing a task runner for acquiring and processing 2D and 3D image data
Ensuring certain portions of the software work on both Windows and macOS.
