Distances diffused during the diffusion time. Comparison of the average distance diffused by water molecules during the diffusion time of the STEAM (blue circle) and M2-SE (green circle) sequences. The distances are super-imposed on a histology image cut from a pig heart perpendicular to the myocyte long axis. Based on a diffusivity of 3 × 10−3mm2s−1, free water molecules at 37 °C would diffuse around 75 μm during the diffusion time of the STEAM sequence, but only 10 μm during the diffusion time of the M2-SE sequence
