A density-weighted concentric ring trajectory MRSI sequence is implemented for cardiac 31P-MRS at 7T. The sequence is characterised in phantoms and in five healthy participants. Quantitative comparisons are made against a previously implemented acquisition weighted CSI sequence with matched acquisition time and voxel size. The proposed sequence (CONCEPT) was found to robustly measure 3D localised PCr/ATP ratios of the human myocardium 2.59 times faster or with 1.73 times smaller nominal volume than standard acquisition weighted CSI.
