This work implements 2D ultra-short TE (UTE) imaging for 23Na using half-pulse excitation. The sequence was examined in numerical simulations and phantom experiments at 7T. 2D UTE 23Na imaging is shown to be less prone to partial volume effects than conventional radial 3D sodium imaging and able to produce high in-plane resolution 23Na images.
