We present a new 31P-MR spectroscopy pulse sequence, the so called Multi-SliCe-Localized-Excitation approach (MUSCLE), which enables time resolved, interleaved non-spin-echo acquisitions of spectra in multiple muscle slabs. The accuracy of slab selection was successfully verified at 3 T by in vitro measurements in a multiple compartment phantom as well as by in vivo measurements of moderately loaded human calf muscles.
