In this work, we examine the effect of two different species of susceptibility producing-structures within one voxel to deduce whether the relaxation rate is proportional to the sum of the absolute product between volume fraction and susceptibility value. Furthermore, the effect of diffusion on the R2 relaxation rate beyond the static dephasing regime is analyzed.
