A novel anisotropic diffusion MRI phantom was developed, which consists of stacked wafers of glass capillary arrays having different pore diameters. This phantom is intended to provide a gold standard to test diffusion MRI methods. We have demonstrated its applicability using DTI and D-PFG MRI experiments.
