In this study, multiple-component water diffusion in the cat brain is investigated using an approach that combines diffusion-weighted images using multiple b values with magnetization transfer contrast (MTC). The MTC allows filter of signal originating from water molecules that rapidly exchange with binding sites on large macromolecular structures, and in brain white matter, it is assumed that a significant portion of the MTC is due to the interaction of water with the extraaxonal myelin sheath… CONTINUE READING
