The use of ultra-strong diffusion gradient systems facilitates high b-values to suppress the signal from biological compartments with significant mobility, and as such the complexity of the model fit can be reduced. Here, we adopt isotropic encoding at high b-values to isolate spherical restricted compartments, and explore whether adding waveforms with different frequency-characteristics give an improvement in parameter-estimation of the spherical compartment.
