Model degeneracy in diffusion MRI could lead to misestimation of microstructural properties. This work presents a metric to characterize the degree of degeneracy and proposes a strategy to break degeneracy by utilizing both diffusion-weighted signal and its spherical mean. We will demonstrate that breaking the degeneracy results in more accurate quantification of microstructure.
