Hyperpolarised xenon-129 MRI has shown utility in longitudinal assessment of lung structure and function, and has been shown to be a repeatable method. Oxygen enhanced MRI is a cheaper method of imaging different aspects of lung function. This work aimed to assess a single-centre repeatability of multiple metrics from both imaging methods in volunteers, and assess any correlations between xenon-129 and oxygen enhanced metrics of lung function.
