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.
