The relationship between the apparent diffusion coefficient of tissue water measured by MR methods and the physiological status of cells is of particular relevance for better understanding and interpretation of diffusion-weighted MRI. In addition, there is considerable interest in developing diffusion-dependent imaging methods capable of providing novel information on tissue microstructure, including intracellular changes. To this end, both the conventional pulsed gradient spin-echo methods and the oscillating gradient spin-echo method, which probes diffusion over very short distance (
