Short-time restricted diffusion in a static gradient and the attenuation of individual coherence pathways.

We experimentally explore some of the implications of a recent theoretical study [J. Magn. Reson. 64 (2003) 145] for the measurement of restricted diffusion in connected porous media in a static gradient. In particular, we examine how restriction affects the short-time attenuation of different coherence pathways, all excited with the same sequence of slice… CONTINUE READING
