Double quantum filtered sodium (23Na) MRI represents a way to examine the degree of tissue microstructure but suffers from low signal intensity and therefore long acquisition time. In this work we developed an efficient simultaneous acquisition scheme of single and double quantum images and determined the optimum acquisition parameters for human skeletal muscle. The feasibility of double quantum filtered 23Na images of human lower leg at 3T was shown.
