In this work, we present a novel multi-nuclei interleaved acquisition sequence that acquires three-directional phase contrast images and phosphorus spectra during muscle exercise. The sequence is combined with electrical muscle stimulation to achieve a comprehensive investigation method of the functionality of the skeletal muscle.
