The equations of the Complete Fourier Direct (CFD) MR model are explicitly derived for diffusion weighted NMR experiments. The CFD-MR theory is validated by comparing a biological phantom constructed from nerve bundles and agar gel with its numerical implementation. The displacement integral distribution function estimated from the experimental data is in high agreement with the numerical phantom. CFD-MR’s ability to estimate accurately and fully spin diffusion properties demonstrated here, provides the experimental validation of the theoretical CFD-MR model.
