In Double-Diffusion-Encoding sequences, concomitant gradients may introduce spatial bias in the measured MRI signal. It is important to characterize such biases since they can affect the accuracy of quantitative microstructural metrics in brain studies. In this work, we assess the signal deviations at different positions along the scanner z-axis in an isotropic phantom for both single- and twice-refocused spin-echo sequences.
