We have developed 3D Multi-Echo Radial Imaging and Tikhonov reconstruction techniques for mapping brain tissue sodium concentration and R2* relaxation rate. The total acquisition time is about 6 minutes. Intra- and inter-cellular sodium concentrations and R2* relaxation rates were simultaneous estimated. Our long term aim is to develop 23Na imaging techniques for studies of brain function and diseases.
