We apply a fractional diffusion model to preclinical data from a mouse model of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and compare to histological measurements of the underlying tissue. We find that the alpha exponent of the model provides contrast which is indicative of the microstructural changes associated with DMD. We observe contrast between the wild type and mdx mouse model.
