The intracellular sodium concentration (CIC) and extracellular volume fraction (ECV) are promising biomarkers in breast lesions. However, separating the contribution of the intracellular (IC) and extracellular (EC) compartments only relying on differences in 23Na relaxation properties is challenging due to close similarity between the two compartments and the inability to measure IC and EC relaxation times in vivo. In this study we demonstrate the feasibility to quantify CIC and ECV in three healthy subjects by using complementary information from 23Na and 1H MRI measurements. The mean CIC and ECV between three healthy subjects were 27.7±4.1 mM and 0.29±0.07, respectively.
