Anomalous water diffusion in biological tissue
A univocal interpretation of the physics driving water diffusion in cellular tissue is not yet achieved and different theoretical approaches currently exist to explain the deviation from pure Gaussian-like behavior. It is however commonly observed in up to date diagnostic imaging technique (MRI), which is widely used to detect pathologies such as ischemia and tumors. Neutron scattering plays here a unique role being able to observe water diffusion at atomic scale even in extremely complex systems. We thus propose a joint MRI-neutron scattering experiment on optimally chosen phantoms in order to validate the complementarities of such techniques.
