Abstract (english): 
Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a novel and versatile imaging modality developing toward 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 for mice is developed, improving the sensitivity in cerebral imaging applications. Similar to magnetic resonance imaging 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 pgfe and detect even small vessels and anatomical structures within a wild type mouse model. As current sensitivity measures require a tracer system a new method for determining a sensitivity measure without this requirement is presented and verified to enable comparison between MPI receiver systems.
