There is an increasing drive to use diffusion spectroscopy to infer the sizes of structures in samples. Here, we use apodised cosine gradient spin echo sequences (OGSE) to infer the surface to volume ratio of a collection of packed capillary tubes. Aiming to reduce imaging times, this study examines how the number of gradients affects the accuracy and precision of the fitted parameters. We found that collecting OGSE data with two b-values may be sufficient to infer information about small structures, especially if higher gradients strengths are used.
