In this talk, I will present our recent efforts in two diffusion imaging applications using strong gradients: measuring diffusion dispersion using oscillating diffusion gradients, and performing segmented diffusion acquisitions using motion-compensated diffusion sensitization. I will contextualize our efforts against a broader background for each subtopic, and I aim to highlight the influence of high-performance gradients on diffusion encoding as pertains to our work and in a more general sense.

Discussion points of the webinar:

  • How can strong magnetic field gradients benefit diffusion MRI acquisitions?
  • What additional microstructural insights are offered by the use of oscillating diffusion gradients?
  • How can motion-compensated diffusion sensitization benefit segmented acquisitions?
