We present a novel design for a magnetic particle imaging (MPI) scanner, a promising new medical imaging modality. This design, inspired by the scanner first proposed by Sattel et al., confines all hardware to a single side of the device, which provides the patient with unrestricted access to the scanning area . Our design differs from original single sided device by incorporating a field free line instead of a field free point, which promises higher sensitivity and more robust image reconstruction. In this work we demonstrate the viability of our design by preforming one dimensional imaging, and through MATLAB based simulations. These simulations demonstrate that our device is capable of imaging complex two dimensional phantoms with a resolution of up to 2mm.
