Non-vanishing diffusion kurtosis
and time-dependent diffusion are both hallmarks of nongaussian diffusion in
biological tissues. Here we combine measurements of time-dependent DTI
parameters and time dependence of mean kurtosis using fast kurtosis imaging in
rat spinal cord. We observe substantial time dependence of all parameters in
both white and gray matter.
