We propose an original technique for measuring axon
diameter distributions that simplifies the AxCaliber
framework in complexity and shortens the acquisition
time. In particular, we derive a new closed form
expression describing the echo attenuation in the
intra-axonal space. The method is validated using
Monte-Carlo simulations of NMR signals from complex
white matter-like environments. The results are
promising and illustrate the potential of the method.
