Diffusion MRI techniques that extend beyond diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) – including double diffusion encoding (DDE) – could provide more specific tools to probe abnormalities in disease or injury states. Here, DDE is applied to reveal the diffusion correlation spectrum on a voxelwise basis, which allows to directly assess the microscopic anisotropy in healthy and injured ferret spinal cords.
