In this abstract we report progress and results towards developing a fully broadband spectrometer for multi-coil multi-nuclear MRI/MRS. This may be of interest for hyperpolarized MRI and MRS studies due to the very limited lifetime of the magnetization, as well as for quantitative MRI. A prototype spectrometer has been developed and tested by simultaneous 1H/2H imaging on a 1.0T magnet and simultaneous 1H/23Na/2H spectroscopy on a 4.7T magnet. The system is capable of acquiring data from four channel array coils for these and other nuclei.
