The method of magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is substantially limited by a rather small field of view (FOV) even in preclinical imaging. To cover a bigger FOV, a multi-patch approach – i.e., scanning of a series of small FOVs (patches) shifted in the space - is necessary. Here, we present a simple software tool for merging of patches into a final 3D volume data of the scanned object. The software reads reconstructed data produced by a field-free point scanner (MPI 25/20FF, Bruker BioSpin MRI GmbH, Germany), merges them, averages data overlapped in the space, and export them in DICOM format. The software is free for non-commercial use.
