Diffusional variance decomposition (DIVIDE) is a promising state-of-the-art approach to measure microscopic microstructure using ‘free’ gradient waveforms (including spherical and linear tensor encoding). Here, in a cohort of 6 participants scanned 5 times each with the DIVIDE protocol, we quantify the microscopic FA (μFA) and isotropic and anisotropic diffusional variance (MKi and MKa) across scans, thus demonstrating high test-retest repeatability.
