Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) describes disorders of the heart and the kidneys in which a dysfunction of one of the organs induces a dysfunction in the other. Sodium MRI at ultrahigh magnetic fields offers an appealing strategy to gain a better functional and metabolic understanding of CRS and detect these diseases earlier. This work describes the design, construction and application of an 8-channel 1H/23Na RF coil tailored for cardiorenal imaging at 7.0 Tesla.
