Double-wave-vector diffusion-weighted imaging is able to detect microscopic diffusion anisotropy in macroscopically isotropic samples. So far, corresponding experiments were performed on NMR systems with high performance gradient coils (>=300mT/m). Here, experiments are presented that provide evidence for the observation of the anisotropy effect on a standard whole-body MR system.
