The aim of magnetorelaxometry imaging is to determine the distribution of magnetic nanoparticles inside a subject by measuring the relaxation of the superposition magnetic field generated by the nanoparticles after they have first been aligned using an external activation magnetic field that has subsequently been switched off. This work applies techniques of Bayesian optimal experimental design to (sequentially) selecting the positions for the activation coil in order to increase the value of data and enable more accurate reconstructions in a simplified measurement setup. Both Gaussian and total variation (TV) prior models are considered for the distribution of the nanoparticles. The former allows simultaneous offline computation of optimized designs for multiple consecutive activations, while the latter introduces adaptability into the algorithm by using previously measured data in choosing the position of the next activation. The TV prior has a desirable edge-enhancing characteristic, but with the downside that the computationally attractive Gaussian form of the posterior density is lost. To overcome this challenge, the lagged diffusivity iteration is used to provide an approximate Gaussian posterior model and allow the use of the standard Bayesian A- and D-optimality criteria for the TV prior as well. Two-dimensional numerical experiments are performed on a few sample targets, with the conclusion that the optimized activation positions lead, in general, to better reconstructions than symmetric reference setups when the target distribution or region of interest are nonsymmetric in shape.
