Triple-quantum filtered sodium imaging suffers from a low signal-to-noise ratio. A sequence to simultaneously acquire tissue sodium concentration weighted images with the triple-quantum filtered images has been developed. The triple-quantum filtered images remain unchanged and additional images are acquired without an extension of the measurement time. In vivo experiments show good results.
