The study of porous microstructures is of high
interest in medical imaging. Diffusion pore imaging (DPI) has recently been
proposed as a means to acquire images of the average cell shape in a
voxel or region of interest.
In this work, we present the feasibility of DPI phantom
measurements on a preclinical 9.4T animal scanner for the first time and preliminarily
compare two different sequence implementations. The shown feasibility on a preclinical system opens the possibility of a
potential in-vivo measurement realization.
