Abstract (english): 
Magnetic particle imaging is a tracer based imaging technique to determine the spatial distribution of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles with a high spatial and temporal resolution. Due to physiological constraints, the imaging volume is restricted in size and larger volumes are covered by shifting object and imaging volume relative to each other. This results in reduced temporal resolution, which can lead to motion artifacts when imaging dynamic tracer distributions. A common source of such dynamic distributions are cardiac and respiratory motion in in-vivo experiments, which are in good approximation periodic. We present a raw data processing technique that combines data snippets into virtual frames corresponding to a specific state of the dynamic motion. The technique is evaluated on the basis of measurement data obtained from a rotational phantom at two different rotational frequencies. These frequencies are determined from the raw data without reconstruction and without an additional navigator signal. The reconstructed images give reasonable representations of the rotational phantom frozen in several different states of motion while motion artifacts are suppressed.
