We propose a multimodal joint estimation that aims at exploiting the complementary information of diffusion and multi-echo spin echo data to disentangle the contributions and properties of the main tissue microstructure compartments. We recovered T2, diffusion coefficient, and volume fractions values of myelin, intracellular, extracellular, and cerebrospinal fluid compartments within an ex vivo spinal cord sample by means of diffusometry and relaxometry. A g-ratio map was also calculated.
