In this work, a three-layered coil arrangement, originally proposed for 23Na MRI at 9.4 T, was adapted for phosphorus spectroscopy and proton imaging to perform 31P 3D chemical shift imaging (CSI) of the human brain at 9.4 T. Owing to the high field strength and the sensitive 27-channel receiver array 31P 3D CSI data could be acquired within 13 min with an acceptable signal-to-noise ratio.
