This work demonstrates synchronous 23Na/1H dual-nuclear MR imaging using radial k-space sampling, which enabled higher SNR images than have been previously obtained with Cartesian synchronous imaging. In a scan time of only 7 minutes, both 1H and 23Na images were obtained that had only minor losses (~6%) when compared to acquiring either 1H or 23Na within separate sequences.
