Imaging of the renal system with sodium MRI has gained interest in the past few years, especially in using the technique to quantify, and assess for, changes in the cortio-medullary sodium gradient.

The main hindrance for previous work has been the lengthy scan time required to obtain sodium images. However, utilizing a 3D cones trajectory, the work presented here shows good detection of the cortio-medullary sodium gradient, in a clinically feasible scan time, in a sample of six healthy controls.
