Non-proton MRI has recently been of great interest with the increased availability of ultra high-field MRI system. A translational multinuclear MRI system for 1H, 13C, 17O, 19F, 23Na and 31P was developed using six optimised single-tuned RF resonator sets and implemented at the home-assembled 9.4T small animal MRI scanner. This system demonstrated its capability of identifying the concentration difference and sensitivity of these X-nuclei without signal-to-noise-ratio loss for any nuclei, subject interruption and degrading in the static shim condition.
