MPI offers a huge potential for cardiovascular imaging and interventional guidance. Especially, stent lumen imaging is an advantageous feature of MPI. Due to the presence of oscillating magnetic fields some metallic objects show temperature increase during MPI scans. Regarding first available human size MPI scanners and thus, future clinical application, the extent of stent heating becomes an important safety issue which could limit the application of MPI for specific patient groups. In this work, the temperature increase of stents with large diameters was investigated to determine the extent of stent heating in MPI.
