Configuration space is explored for sodium MRI with bSSFP in phantoms and for the brain of a healthy volunteer. To this end, a set of eight phase-cycled bSSFP scans are recorded and from the lowest order configuration modes, quantitative T1, T2 and sodium concentration maps are heuristically derived using the framework valid for spin-1/2 particles.
